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.

Poem, Tz’aneem

Manuel Chavajay

Every day there are fewer spaces.

Spaces that are becoming violent,

spaces kidnapped by architectures,

by shipments.

Playing is where one learns to enjoy,

Shout, laugh, share, cry, invent, without time mattering – time

in our context is reflected by our military governments

who have impoverished our people. The inherited fear of

armed conflict that persists in different forms.

Use traditional or untraditional games to tell of our

history, our reality, where we remain bogged down in a process

of militarization.

I love intervening in the landscape, why? It’s where we see ourselves. I’m in contact with the Lake, fire, earth, winds, volcanoes, mountains and the blue sky when it gets dark traces the Milky Way where my Ancestors communicate and count the passing of time. I stem from ideas, research, dreams, history, ancestral practices and the energies of sacred places. I’m interested in resolving my Art such that the spectator can ask herself how beautiful the Place in which we live is but how we are destroying it.
