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.

Feliz Navidad

A*DESK

Este año no hay fiestas de navidad. Casi como un reverso de la situación económica y coyuntural (cuyo efecto directo en arte significa menos actividades, menos exposiciones, durante más tiempo y un futuro por ver) las fechas celebrativas de navidad caen en fin de semana. Así que: no hay tiempo para fiestas. Casi mejor. Así nos evitamos la pesadilla de un par de semanas de parón en pleno invierno a costa de indigestiones. En cualquier caso, como si no pasase nada, dedicamos este último de número del año a la crítica de cuatro exposiciones en Barcelona (Daniel Jacoby en la galería Toni Tàpies, “Let us face the future” en la Fundación Miró, “Sinapsis” en La Capella y “¿Estáis preparados para la televisión?” en el Macba). Sirvan, al menos, como recomendaciones navideñas. O como muestra de que, a pesar de todo, sí que algo pasa, que hay vida más allá de Papa Noel. Feliz navidad.

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.
