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

Llevamos un tiempo de re-escritura de la historia, de repensar la institución, de acercamiento a lo político, de trabajo con lo social, de mirada crítica, de posicionamientos varios. El vocabulario del contexto del arte ha asumido muchos elementos sin ningún problema, proponiéndose una voluntad de cambio y de redefinición. ¿Es así? ¿O nos estamos acercando peligrosamente a un formalismo para la lucha? En un momento de cambios globales, y revolucionarios, a lo mejor nos tocaría buscar cierta incomodidad, hacia lo inestable, lo imprevisible. Lo inseguro ya lo tenemos, y no por voluntad propia, sino que es lo que hay.

Tres nuevos artículos. En este número nos acercamos a la mirada hacia las oportunidades del pasado así como seguimos en la actualidad del presente artístico. Haizea Barcenilla se pregunta sobre el modo en que el Pompidou recupera ahora a Mondrian. Clara Duch Alanyà se acerca a la arquitectura revolucionaria rusa en CaixaForum, y Núria Miret visita la exposición de Sara Ramo en la galería Estrany – de la Mota.

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.
