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.

Jørgen Leth “The perfect human”

A*DESK

Seguro que en breve hablaremos de “Nymphomaniac”, la última película de Lars Von Trier. Este nunca ha ocultado que Jørgen Leth es una de sus referencias. De hecho en 2003 rodaron una película juntos en la que el joven director sometía a cinco obstrucciones a su maestro (“De fem benspænd”). La huella de Jørgen Leth sobre Lars Von Trier es fácil de localizar en la asepsia de la mítica “66 Scenes from America” (con la célebre escena de Andy Warhol comiéndose una hamburguesa). Pero hoy os dejamos con una de las primeras películas de Jørgen Leth “The perfect human”. Puede ser todo un reto buscar similitudes con al producción de Lars Vor Trier y sin embargo sí que las encontraremos más fácilmente con otros coetáneos suyos como Bruce Nauman. O, a lo mejor, rebuscando en la vida de Jørgen Leth encontráis de manera más clara esa referencia a Lars Von Trier y al “Nymphomaniac”…

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.
