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.

Miralda: un documental

A*DESK

Hace unas semanas en TV3 programaron un documental sobre Miralda, su obra y su relación con la comida, dirigido por Zé Peixoto. Hoy domingo os dejamos y recuperamos este seguimiento por el trabajo de Miralda, uno de los referentes que sobre los que en A*DESK nos gusta pensar y dejarnos caer de tanto en tanto. Atención hacia la mitad de la película la referencia a “El Internacional”, un icono de Nueva York en los ochenta. Y la constante insistencia de Miralda a la diferencia entre lo comestible y lo digerible y lo que comemos y lo que digerimos… Obviamente, Miralda muestra una relación entre comida, cocina y arte mucho más compleja de las que últimamente visitan los museos y que también hemos mencionado, críticamente, en A*DESK esta misma semana.

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.
