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 vueltas con Tàpies

Hacía tanto tiempo que Tàpies no era objeto de estudio en serio, que ahora es noticia. Hace unos meses, Valentín Roma fue “contra Tàpies” y lo confrontó con el presente (en la Fundació Tàpies). Ahora Vicenç Todolí quiere ir a su favor y mostrar su trabajo “desde el interior”(en la Fundació Tàpies y el MNAC). Ambos evidencian la “problemática Tàpies”: imposible encajarlo en cualquier genealogía de artistas. Mientras Beuys, por ejemplo, era proactivo y su trabajo se basaba en la discusión de ideas y en el estar en público, Tàpies se nos sigue apareciendo solo y aislado en su estudio.

Montse Badia has never liked standing still, so she has always thought about travelling, entering into relation with other contexts, distancing herself, to be able to think more clearly about the world. The critique of art and curating have been a way of putting into practice her conviction about the need for critical thought, for idiosyncrasies and individual stances. How, if not, can we question the standardisation to which we are being subjected?
