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

José Luis Brea es un referente para el pensamiento crítico, alguien a quien admirar no únicamente por sus escritos y puntos de vista sino también por su actitud y su voluntad de investigar siempre un poco más para seguir defendiendo, desde el cuestionamiento, el arte y el pensamiento crítico como vías posibles y factibles. Hablamos de José Luis Brea en presente, ya que sigue y seguirá durante mucho tiempo definiendo y dando sentido a la cultura visual y al arte contemporáneo: desde la escritura y desde la creación de plataformas, desde la conexión entre contextos y desde el posicionamiento crítico riguroso y de calidad. Con tristeza, seguiremos teniéndole como ejemplo, como modelo, como todo aquello que valoramos, necesitamos y sentimos.

Empezamos temporada en A*DESK. De momento, con tres artículos para seguir con el propósito de entender el espacio de la crítica de arte de un modo amplio. Montse Badia analiza la exposición “Antifotoperiodismo” en La Virreina Centre de la Imatge en Barcelona, Xavier Acarín situa “Greater New York” en PS.1 en relación a la bienal del Whitney, y Martí Manen se pregunta sobre la relación entre los museos y las redes sociales.

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.
