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.

You can decide how much you want to bring to the project.

6 Conca: incompatibilidades

La misma ley para el Conca también dice que “els membres del Consell Nacional de la Cultura i de les Arts que tenen dedicació exclusiva són els que exerceixen la presidència i les dues vicepresidències”.

Hasta la fecha la vicepresidencia primera del Conca, desempeñada por Pilar Parcerisas, compagina el cargo con la presidencia de la ACCA (Associació Catalana de Crítics d’Art), además de otras responsabilidades ligadas a su función como ser miembro asesor de Roca Umbert Fàbrica de les Arts en Granollers o la crítica de arte en el suplemento cultural del periódico Avui.

A*DESK, Independent Institute of Criticism and Contemporary Art, is dedicated to learning, publishing and research related to the criticism of contemporary art. Taking the view that critical thought makes individuals free, its mission is to defend actively the importance of criticism: to generate debate about contemporary art, to enable each individual to establish their own opinion and by doing so promote culture.
