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

Todo se viene abajo. El modelo no se aguanta. Hasta aquí podíamos llegar. Podríamos estar hablando tanto del sistema político global, de economía, de ferias en Madrid u otros lugares, de bienales y su multiplicación o copia, o de cómo se reparten las becas desde la desconfianza.

Es necesario repensar las cosas, buscar otros modos y cortar por lo sano cuando sea la mejor opción. Y aquí, de nuevo, un papel que toca asumir: el de replantearlo todo, el de dar opciones, el de ser constructivo que no colaboracionista. Después otros tendrán que escuchar, algo que parecía inecesario desde algunas instancias que han perdido todo contacto con la realidad.

En este número de A*DESK publicamos artículos que analizan opciones. La bienal del Whitney de la mano de Xavier Acarín, la situación en ARCO por parte de Rosa Naharro, el papel del coleccionismo por Marcela Römer, y Paloma Checa escribe sobre la propuesta expositiva “Fetiches críticos” en el CA2M en Móstoles.

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.
