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.

Crisis y bienales

Martí Manen

Las bienales en el este de Europa han sobrevivido, durante bastante tiempo, gracias a que varios artistas recibían el apoyo de instituciones de su país de origen para participar en ellas.

No es ninguna sorpresa que el número de artistas de países con tradición y estructuras para la internacionalización de sus creadores siempre ha sido más elevado que los que no tenían sistemas para aportar cash.

¿Qué pasa cuando la crisis afecta a estas instituciones para la internacionalización? ¿Veremos otros listados de artistas en las bienales? ¿Van a caer muchos de estos eventos? ¿Las bienales dejarán de ser lugares para la producción?

Exhibition curator and art critic. Yes, after Judith Butler it is possible to be several things at once. He thinks that questions are important and that, sometimes, to ask means to point out.
