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.

Cursos específicos sobre el trabajo en arte

David Armengol

Hoy en día, afirmar y darse cuenta de las múltiples transformaciones y cambios que afectan al trabajo del artista no es ninguna novedad. La imagen romántica del creador que trabaja aislado en su taller ha sido sustituida por un perfil mucho más rico y complejo: el de productor cultural. Un agente capaz de construir marcos de trabajo compartidos y plurales, en el que conocer todos los entresijos y detalles de su actividad, le va a permitir lidiar con mayor efectividad dentro de sus contextos específicos.

En los últimos años, han proliferado los cursos de formación específica para artistas. Modelos de aprendizaje e intercambio de conocimiento que apuestan por otros ritmos y redes de trabajo, ampliando así sus mecanismos de actuación.

En este sentido, l’Associació d’Artistes Visuals de Catalunya y Hangar lanzan estos días el programa de cursos de Formació Contínua. Un amplio abanico de seminarios dirigidos a la profesionalización del trabajo en arte.

David Armengol (Barcelona, 1974) is an independent curator who combines his curatorial practice with other parallel activities such as cultural management and teaching. He is particularly interested in music, nature and storytelling, but from the field of contemporary art. In other words, he does not know how to play any instrument, is not a great adventurer and does not master the art of storytelling. In a way, it is enough for him that his passions of sound, landscape and narrative coexist in the format of an exhibition. That's why he always thinks of artists.
