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.

8 El otro Consell de les Arts

Se ha hecho mucho ruido con el Consell de les Arts i la Cultura, pero resulta que en Barcelona existe otro Consell de Cultura desde 2007. Con carácter consultivo, opina pero no decide, aunque tiene un papel importante en el control y desarrollo del plan estratégico. Para la formulación del plan, el ayuntamiento reunió a varios agentes del sector en 2006 para que opinaran sobre qué hacer con la cultura y el arte en Barcelona, aunque la plasmación del plan no estuvo directamente vinculado con lo dicho.

Después de las sesiones y la definición del propio plan se creó el Consell de Cultura de Barcelona, se decidió que cobraran dietas por las reuniones, que las decisiones fueran consensuadas y que existiera un comité ejecutivo que, entre otras cosas, escogió a Carles Guerra como director del nuevo centro de la imagen. Entre los miembros del comité ejecutivo están, representando al sector artístico, Daniel Giralt Miracle y Rosa Pera. Pera también formaba parte del jurado de Canòdrom.

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.
