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.

Today at 7pm, ArtsComing, will be presented at Arts Santa Mònica, a project that is very close to A*DESK. Not just because some of the people behind the project are collaborators and friends of A*DESK and vice-versa, but also because it is a project that arises out of a belief in the democratization of art, thinking about other ways of distributing knowledge and in working directly, without mediators nor mediation, with creators. ArtsComing eis half way between a production company and a publisher. Its objective is to edit and produce works by artists with an unlimited and affordable print run. With it they aim to bring art to a broad public, not just through the commercialisation of editions, but also by fomenting discussion and training around artistic practices.

To start of with they are already working on projects with Rafel G. Bianchi, Xavier Arenós, Mireia Sallarès, Domènec, Antonio Gagliano, Núria Güell and Dani Montlleó.

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.
