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.

A Duchampian week

A Duchampian week

We began the week with a review by Peio Aguirre of the exhibition that the Barbican in London is dedicating to “The Bride and the Bachelors; Duchamp with Cage, Cunningham, Rauschenberg and Johns”. And we end it, in true Duchampian style.

Linking to a video where Adrian Searle chats to Philippe Parreno (artist and co-curator of the show) about the project.

And another of Searle with the other curator of the exhibition, Carlos Basualdo.

All with music by John Cage for Duchamp:

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.
