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.

Matrimonio ‘art & porn’

Aimar Arriola

Hace unas pocas semanas se ha publicado el último número de la revista Zehar editada por Arteleku (disponible on-line), que recoge algunas aproximaciones a “el cuerpo desde sus fronteras” de la mano de Titus Matiyane, Elke Zobl, Itziar Ziga, Gabriel Villota Toyos, Beatriz Preciado, y Marina Grzinic, entre otros.

En su texto, Beatriz Preciado se aproxima a la pornografía como discurso cultural y sitúa sus orígenes cerca de la institución ‘museo’. Ya desde el primer párrafo denuncia la atracción del mercado del arte hacia el porno –con Mapplethorpe, Koons, o Daniel Edwards al frente– y su simultáneo rechazo cuando este viene del feminismo (que se lo cuenten si no a Annie Sprinkle)

La inauguración en la galería Helga de Alvear de Madrid de la más reciente “porno producción” de Santiago Sierra la misma semana de la publicación del texto no hace más que reforzar la tésis. Vamos, que nos queda matrimonio art& porn para rato…
