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.

Contra los tópicos

Ya ha llegado el verano. Implacable. Sol, calor, bienales inauguradas, exposiciones colectivas en las galerías… Pero no vamos a caer en tópicos. Ni verano es sólo sol y playa, ni todas las colectivas estivales son ligeras, ni todos los best-sellers son simplones. Verano puede ser tiempo de desconexión, pero también de reflexión y, sobre todo, de lectura. Así que, mientras nos preparamos para las novedades de la rentrée (nuevas programaciones, nuevos concursos y, esperemos que buenas exposiciones -y si no ya nos encargaremos nosotros de señalarlo-), un poco de food for thought: en este número de a-desk, David G. Torres escribe sobre la colección del MACBA, Montse Badia sobre la colectiva comisariada por Jonathan Monk en ProjecteSD, Aimar Arriola sobre la exposición de Azucena Vieites en la galería Fúcares y Alba Mayol analiza la trilogía “Inferno”, “Purgatorio” y “Paradiso” de Romeo Castelluci.

Buen verano a todos (con o sin vacaciones).

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.
