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.

Guerra en la Virreina

Hoy se ha presentado a prensa el nuevo director para La Virreina. Centre de la imatge en Barcelona: Carles Guerra. Ganador de un nuevo concurso decidido por el siguente jurado: Frederic Amat; Xavier Antich; Laura Baigorri; Marta Gili; Isaki Lacuesta; Rosa Pera; y Luciano Rigolini. A partir de ahora le toca el trabajo de definir y dar forma al cambio de nomenclatura de Centre d’Exposicions a Centre de la Imatge, un campo lo suficientemente abierto y diferenciador. Carles Guerra se incorporará al puesto en noviembre, reemplazando a Iván de la Nuez.

Desde aquí nuestras felicitiaciones y recordar su participación en una encuesta que hicimos sobre el artista activo: aquí.

PD: Virreina se ha avanzado al anunciado concurso para el futuro centro de arte de Barcelona, el Canódromo, del que aún no tenemos noticias.

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.
