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.

Imagen, registro, historia y Rabin Mroué

A*DESK

En Image(s), mon amour, comentada por Manuela Pedrón el pasado jueves, Rabih Mroué expone un trabajo que nos permite indagar en los sucesos recientes ocurridos en Oriente Medio –y no tan recientes- a través de lo que él llama revolución pixelada. Más allá de la lectura antropológica o política de su obra, acaso sea el quid en Mroué el nuevo elemento que adjudica a la imagen como tal, que trasciende el mero registro y deviene hecho por sí mismo. Imágenes que actúan, que van más allá del testimonio y devienen prueba de existencia, prueba de realidad. Historia.

Os dejamos con este video en el que (después de una introducción de un minuto y poco) Mroué demuestra cómo desde la captura del “Double shooting” se puede llegar a las retinas de víctima y asesino.

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.
