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.

Book-trailer by Eloy Fernández Porta

A few days ago Eduardo Pérez Soler wrote in response to a tweet that said the future of reading is not reading (and announced a second positive instalment). A book-trailer is a filmed text where the reading is fused and illustrated with images. We’ll leave you here with the book-trailer for Eloy Fernández Porta’s latest book, Emociónese así. A text of sampled images, with a mixture of references, (some of which Eloy Fernández Porta has considered and implemented in his books). Starting with “The great Lebowski”, Charles Bronson, Lynda Benglis, Carole Schemann and Genesis P-Orridge file past in an endeavour to identify some of the politics of contemporary sentiment. A reading that could quite easily respond to this future of reading, that is to be read.

This month Eloy Fernández Porta will be carrying out a workshop at A*DESK within our study programme

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.
