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.

Momento de cierre contable en instituciones de todo pelaje. Y la crisis económica es mucho más que un estado de ánimo. Las instituciones que trabajan con arte contemporáneo en España siguen siendo jóvenes, con lo que su arraigo en el sistema es aún débil. La combinación de los elementos, siendo pájaro de mal agüero, lleva a pensar que más de una desaparecerá o transformará su función durante los próximos años. Que las cosas desaparezcan o se modifiquen no es malo perse, pero lo es si la incapacidad de llenar todos esos containers de lujo que hemos repartido por el territorio responde únicamente al dinero contante y sonante.

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.
