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.

Comisarios, al frente

A*DESK

En momentos de crisis el Instituto de Arte Contemporáneo, con el Ministerio de Cultura del Gobierno de España, ha organizado una serie de mesas redondas para tratar el trabajo de los comisarios independientes. A*DESK ha participado por partida triple, intentando aportar una visión crítica y de contacto con la realidad: la realidad del sector, la realidad política y la realidad “real” de la que habla Boris Groys. Se han observado distintas aproximaciones, distintas voces y distintas actitudes. El repensar críticamente qué hacemos no puede ser más que positivo.

En este nuevo número presentamos tres artículos que contienen varias miradas. Dos dobles aproximaciones a dos exposiciones y una relectura transcontinental de otra. Frederic Montornés comenta las exposiciones de Pep Durán y Lúa Coderch en La Capella del Macba y La Capella (que debía ser de Canòdrom), Andrea Pacheco se acerca a dos propuestas expositivas con artistas de origen latinoamericano y Marcela Römer comenta desde una mirada argentina la exposición que se presentó en el CCCB El d_efecto barroco.

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.
