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.

Misha Bies Golas has opened the window

The Window has illuminated Dr. Fourquet for a month and a half, behind the window, that the recently inaugurated gallery Louis 21 has decided to destine to specific projects. The work of Misha Bies Golas stems from appropriation, series of pages rescued from gymnastics or good conduct manuals. It’s a case of reading between the lines, or of noticing the hidden side. Of looking at both in this case, and reconsidering the message.

The minimal gesture probably seeks this levity, the possibility of opening up a new path or simply of triggering a smile with this subtle wink. It’s not the first time that he has decided to do nothing, papering the CGAC with messages about the crisis of faith or elaborating posters that alert to the rebellious youth. Ideas from the past presented for the stunned eyes of the present.

Soon at The Envelope, a space for interventions that Louis 21 has opened in its gallery in Palma de Mallorca, Misha Bies Golas will hang the aeroplane of Feldmann. If we’re going to be something, let it be nothing. If we’re going to be somewhere, let it be with the stars. Be a Star, as Carlos Pazos said.

Ángel Calvo Ulloa was born in a very small place full of vile characters. In the faculty where he studied nobody ever talked to him about criticism or curating, so now he dedicates his time to reading, writing and every now and again doing the odd exhibition. He loves travelling and feeling very small in a large city. He also loves going back home and once again hating this tiny place.
