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

A-Desk entiende la crítica de arte como un espacio plural desde el que relacionarse con la práctica artística contemporánea. En un contexto de velocidad, A-Desk plantea una pausa para el diálogo y la comprensión común de las distintas posiciones sin perder, eso sí, el contacto con la realidad.

En este número preguntamos sobre su situación a artistas que tienen vinculaciones profesionales con el contexto artístico más allá de las que surgen de su creación artística. La palabra no es propiedad de la crítica, de las instituciones o las academias, sino algo para compartir y generar un contexto crítico constructivo común.

También publicamos textos críticos sobre los premios Turner, sobre “Registres i hàbits” en la Fundació Tàpies, sobre el fenómeno radiofónico mediante los ejemplos de “Hem pres la ràdio” y “Sonía”.

Y nuestras secciones habituales de Actualidad, Agenda, Direcciones, Convocatorias y A-Desk recomienda.

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.
