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.

Las vacaciones del arte contemporáneo en Barcelona

En A*DESK, como en tantos lugares dedicados al arte contemporáneo como otras asociaciones, publicaciones, colectivos, artistas, comisarios, críticos o galeristas de Barcelona, nos estábamos preparando para las vacaciones. Nosotros estábamos pensando qué artículos dejábamos preparados, cómo enfocaríamos los programas de formación el año que viene; hacíamos un poco de orden… Y de repente, sin esperarlo, nos enteramos de que el arte contemporáneo ha llegado a Barcelona. Justo ahora cuando nos íbamos de vacaciones el MACBA nos llama a que vivamos el arte contemporáneo en Barcelona.

Nos asaltan varias dudas: ¿hasta ahora no hemos vivido el arte contemporáneo? ¿el arte contemporáneo se vive? ¿a partir de ahora podremos vivir del arte contemporáneo? y ¿podremos hacer vacaciones?

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.
