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.

El síndrome Fernando Castro

Hace pocos días Ana Llurba reseñaba el último libro de Fernando Castro Flores, Mierda y catástrofe. Síndromes culturales en el arte contemporáneo (Editorial Fórcola, 2014). En él, el crítico de arte diagnostica, con su particular forma de ver las cosas, el estado actual de la institución arte, la teoría y la crítica.

También, no hace tanto, Sonia Fernández Pan reclamaba la necesidad de juicio y posicionamiento en la generación de una crítica trascendente y relevante.

Os dejamos un video de 2008 que registra una breve pero directa entrevista a Castro Flórez. En ella se identifican algunas pinceladas de cómo entiende el autor cuestiones como el lugar y la forma de la crítica actual, el posicionamiento del pensamiento contemporáneo, la función de las instituciones culturales o el propio arte como espacios de debate.

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.
