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.

Capital cultural

David G. Torres

Quince ciudades españolas compiten por la capitalidad cultural europea en 2016: Santander, San Sebastian, Oviedo, Burgos, Pamplona, Zaragoza, Segovia, Tarragona, Alcala de Henares, Cuenca, Cáceres, Córdoba, Murcia, Málaga y Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. De todas ellas, sólo una, o dos, será finalmente seleccionada. Entre medio, presupuestos, equipos de trabajo, proyectos que no se sabe muy bien que rendimiento final obtendrán. Mucho capital invertido. Tal vez podríamos preguntarnos cuantos proyectos culturales, cuanta inversión cultural (sin las excusas del turismo o el prestigio), podrían llevarse a cabo con todo ese capital… cultural.
