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

Aprovechamos que Manifesta 8 termina para aproximarnos a algunas preguntas que cierran la primera década del 2000. El tiempo vuela y es necesario repensar figuras, modos de actuación y descubrir otros ángulos para observar lo que nos rodea: ¿Qué ha pasado con el comisariado? ¿A qué se está jugando desde el campo institucional? ¿Podemos hablar sin tapujos del branding y el arte? tres preguntas, entre otras muchas, que deja la segunda edición -de ocho- de Manifesta en la península ibérica.

Montse Badia se pregunta sobre la figura del comisario, Marti Manen sobre las formas institucionales y Cecilia Martín sobre el co-branding en el caso de Murcia y Manifesta.

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.
