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.

You can decide how much you want to bring to the project.

Moritz Küng, nombrado director del Canódromo

Los comienzos pintaban mal: un proceso de concurso muy lento, sesiones abiertas de trabajo de finalidad incierta, concursos de ideas abiertos para una primera exposición que no forma parte del proyecto del nuevo director y algunas otras cosas… Hoy, por fín, se ha desvelado el nombre del nuevo director de Canódrom, Moritz Küng.

Mortiz Küng es un comisario independiente, nacido en Suiza y residente en Bélgica, actualmente jefe del Departamento de Exposiciones de deSingel, Centre International d’Art d’Anvers. Entre otros, ha sido comisario del Pabellón Belga en la Bienal de Sao Paulo (2002) y de la Bienal de Arquitectura en Venecia (2008). Ha comisariado exposiciones individuales de los arquitectos Abalos & Herreros, R&Sie-François Roche, Christian Kerez y de los artistas Dominique Gonzales-Foerster, Joëlle Tuerlinckx y Heimo Zobernig, entre otros. En Barcelona, en la Sala Montcada, comisarió una exposición con Lara Almarcegui y Adrian Schiess (2004).

El nombramiento de Küng es una buena noticia, aprovechamos para felicitarle y para anunciar que pronto le entrevistaremos para conocer más detalles sobre su proyecto.

A*DESK is a critical platform focused on publishing, training, experimentation, communication and dissemination in relation to contemporary culture and art, which is defined by transversality. The starting point is contemporary art, because that is where we come from and this awareness allows us to go much further, to incorporate other disciplines and forms of thought in order debate issues that are relevant and urgent for understanding our present.
