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 selflessly with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow. 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.

Montse Badia

Demasiado a menudo nos quejamos del exceso de institucionalización, de lo difícil que es hacer y que pasen “cosas”. Pero, afortunadamente, de vez en cuando, alguien toma la inciativa y se pone manos a la obra. ¿Quieres hacer una exposición? Pues, hazla.

Se inauguró el viernes 6 de noviembre y termina mañana 8 de noviembre. Se titula “Entes” y reúne a una treintena (treinta y uno, para ser más exactos) de artistas vinculados al contexto barcelonés. El lugar: un piso de 40 metros cuadrados en el barrio de Gracia.

La exposición es tan fresca como irregular, pero lo que aporta al panorama es energía, dinamismo, colaboración e intercambio. En definitiva, todo lo que contribuye a la creación de contexto.

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?
