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 with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow internationally. 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.

Las formas y el fondo

El contexto no hace el arte, el concurso no hace el proyecto, el display no hace la exposición, el dossier no hace la obra, el contrato no hace el artista, los vuelos intercontinentales no hacen el comisario, el edificio no hace el centro de arte, el pelotismo no hace la comunidad, la simpatía no hace la carrera…

La apuesta debe ser otra: los contenidos, las ideas, discutir y ofrecer el material necesario para que se genere tal discusión. Un trabajo directo, sin estrategias y protocolos establecidos y, sobre todo, sin relaciones de dependencia, simplemente una apuesta por pensar, escribir y discutir sobre arte.

En este número de A-Desk publicamos una entrevista con Elena Vozmediano como presidenta del IAC. David Armengol escribre sobre Cildo Meireles en el Macba, Alba Mayol sobre Kiki Smith en la Fundació Miró, Claudio Iglesias sobre Re.Act.Feminism en la Akademie der Künste, Aimar Arriola sobre Global Kiosk en la Sala d’Art Jove y Martí Manen sobre la idea de “verdad” en relación al arte contemporáneo.

A*DESK is a critical platform focused on publishing, training, experimentation, communication and dissemination in relation to contemporary culture and art, which is defined by transversality. The starting point is contemporary art, because that is where we come from and this awareness allows us to go much further, to incorporate other disciplines and forms of thought in order debate issues that are relevant and urgent for understanding our present.
