A*DESK has been offering since 2002 contents about criticism and contemporary art. A*DESK has become consolidated thanks to all those who have believed in the project, all those who have followed us, debating, participating and collaborating. Many people have collaborated with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow internationally. At A*DESK we have also generated work for over one hundred professionals in culture, from small collaborations with reviews and classes, to more prolonged and intense collaborations.

At A*DESK we believe in the need for free and universal access to culture and knowledge. We want to carry on being independent, remaining open to more ideas and opinions. If you believe in A*DESK, we need your backing to be able to continue. You can now participate in the project by supporting it. You can choose how much you want to contribute to the project.

12 Callar

Poner nombres y apellidos, pedir explicaciones, escribir sobre las dudas, opinar sobre temas complicados, hablar de dinero, hablar del dinero que se maneja, hablar de lo que parece que roza lo ilegal, presentar situaciones que no son positivas, dar la culpa, apuntar con el dedo…

Nada de esto se hace en el mundo del arte. Mejor callar que no sea que nos saquen esa subvención, que no nos inviten a esa conferencia, que nos miren mal, que hablen mal de nosotros, que nos quedemos sin trabajo.

El poder, el poder. El poder se da, no se tiene.

Feliz 2010

A*DESK is a critical platform focused on publishing, training, experimentation, communication and dissemination in relation to contemporary culture and art, which is defined by transversality. The starting point is contemporary art, because that is where we come from and this awareness allows us to go much further, to incorporate other disciplines and forms of thought in order debate issues that are relevant and urgent for understanding our present.
