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.

La televisión es cultura

A*DESK

El lunes Ángel Calvo recordaba el mítico “Rock my religion” de Dan Graham en un espacio autogestionado de Oporto, Uma certa falta de Coerência. Si alguien aún no ha visto el vídeo o simplemente quiere pasar una hora de domingo revistándolo, aquí lo encontrará. No hay que esperar a que sea programado. Este es el significado de la televisión a la carta que implica internet como un posible espacio para la circulación del conocimiento. Y que permite, en esta semana en la que se ha discutido tanto sobre la televisión pública y muy poco sobre modelos de televisión, recuperar algún momento en el que televisión y cultura no estaban reñidos. Arsenal es uno de esos programas míticos que permitía repensar la imagen -antes de que las entidades de gestión sobre derechos de imagen luchasen contra la cita, el collage y el corta y pega, verdaderas estrategias del pensamiento contemporáneo- y elaborar auténticas piezas que sin pudor podemos colocar en la estela de “Rock my religion”. Últimamente, Manuel Huerga ha ido recopilando en su web los diversos programas. Hablando de collage, corta y pega, cita y pensamiento contemporáneo, rescatamos el titulado “La terra de las 100 dances”.

Por cierto, Bibiana Ballbè, no sabemos si es entretenido, pero seguro que es cultura y televisión.

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.
