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.

For a while now, TED Talks has become a key page of a more constructive internet. Dedicated to disseminating ideas in the form of short talks, from the initial triad of “technology, entertainment and design” TED today covers the majority of subjects, from science to business, as well as global issues. Today we share a talk by the expert in global strategy, Parag Khanna, who predicts the evolution of geography towards “connectography”, to a time governed by the density of connectivity more than the depth of political frontiers.

This emerging global network based on connectivity will bring a reduction of pollution and inequality, as well as better communications and an abatement of geopolitical rivalry. Because it also has to be possible to imagine a future with hope.

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.
