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.

A*DESK

Uno de los grandes logros del arte contemporáneo es su versatilidad. Su libertad, en definitiva, para reformularse, acercarse a otras metodologías y mezclarse con otras aproximaciones. Los artistas tienen a su disposición todos los medios a su alcance. Pueden convertir sus trabajos en novelas, obras de teatro, campañas publicitarias, películas, documentales, videoclips, esudios sociológicos, prototipos arquitectónicos, programas de televisión o partidos políticos. Esto en el mejor de los casos. En el peor, puede caerse en un amateurismo con ínfulas de complejidad. Pero la pregunta interesante sería: ¿existe una mirada al arte o a su manera de hacer desde esas otras disciplinas? ¿Cuál es el peso específico del arte y sus modos de hacer en otras actividades?

En este número de a-desk nos encontramos con algunas artistas cuyos discursos se mueven en terrenos compartidos con otros ámbitos. Martí Manen entrevista al director de teatro Rodrigo García; David G. Torres escribe sobre las exposiciones de Keren Cytter y Dora García en Estrany-de la Mota y ProjecteSD, respectivamente; Montse Badia analiza la muestra de Aleksandra Mir en la Galería Joan Prats y Claudio Iglesias analiza la reciente edición de la Trienal de Chile.

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.
