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.

You can decide how much you want to bring to the project.

A*DESK

No nos cansaremos de agradecer el recibir un premio por parte de los galeristas. Significa, entre otras cosas, que existe una voluntad constructiva de cara al sector, entendiéndose que todas las partes son constitutivas y que toca seguir trabajando -desde cada posición- para mejorar lo que nos rodea y lo que nos define.

Seguimos en ello. En este número nos centramos en otros ritmos. Si en el número anterior el peso estaba en el mercado, en este queremos insistir en la necesidad de repensar los sistemas de relación, producción, presentación y definición en arte. Encontramos exposiciones que buscan ser un lugar y un tiempo activo, instituciones que buscan otros caminos y posibilidades, y también observamos propuestas que se consideran fuera del contexto del arte contemporáneo pero que beben de las mismas fuentes. En este número de A*DESK Javier Hontoria se acerca al Musac y su propuesta expositiva abierta, Martí Manen habla sobre algunos modelos institucionales que trabajan en otros ritmos, Marcela Römer cuestiona el conservadurismo en arte, y Alba Mayol analiza la última película de Michael Haneke.

A*DESK, Independent Institute of Criticism and Contemporary Art, is dedicated to learning, publishing and research related to the criticism of contemporary art. Taking the view that critical thought makes individuals free, its mission is to defend actively the importance of criticism: to generate debate about contemporary art, to enable each individual to establish their own opinion and by doing so promote culture.
