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

En la jornada de hoy, última de Loop’09, una mesa redonda que prometía: “How do new technologies and the new participatory internet culture affect the production and distribution of video art?”, moderada por Julia Draganovic (crítica y comisaria independiente, que vive y trabaja en Italia) y con la participación de Christopher Eamon (crítico y comisario que vive y trabaja en Nueva York y que durante once años fue director artístico de la colección Kramlich), Mike Stubbs (director de FACT, Liverpool) y Domenico Quaranta (crítico y comisario que vive y trabaja en Milán).

Prometía plantear muchas cuestiones que parecen ser ahora mismo el centro de la reflexión para entender los rápidos cambios que afectan a nuestra sociedad y, naturalmente, también a la producción y distribución de vídeo.

Muchas preguntas y pocas respuestas y, desafortunadamente, algunas preguntas un poco demasiado difusas. Se ha hablado mucho de distribución, de usuarios, de formatos, de cultura visual y poco de arte, de percepción, de espacio y de experiencia. Curioso que a veces una misma palabra pueda ser entendida de tan diversas formas.

No obstante, es interesante que una feria de vídeo, cuyo objetivo es la venta, incorpore una mirada a otras formas de producir y distribuir los trabajos y exista la intuición de donde puede estar el gran debate.

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.
