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.

¿Quién pinta qué en Barcelona?

Caterina Almirall


Picto BCN: porque hay artistas que pintan en la Barcelona contemporánea. Un proyecto financiado a través de verkami que quiere dar visibilidad a aquellos extraños personajes que son jóvenes, viven en Barcelona y… ¡pintan! El proyecto web recoge desde 2008 a modo de archivo la obra de artistas de la ciudad que trabajan con pintura. Este octubre lanzarán una publicación que han pagado esos pequeños y grandes mecenas que creen en ellos, a quienes les gusta la pintura, y que quieren un libro que no será un catálogo, sino más bien, como explican ellos “un paseo entre las diferentes fricciones pictóricas”.

Caterina Almirall has only just been born into this world, but has lived in others, in similar parallel worlds, both liquid and solid. From each she has learnt something, and forgotten something else. Learning to unlearn. In all of these worlds she has been caught up in a web that interweaves everything, some call it ’art’...Entwining, unravelling, weaving and destroying this labyrinth has been her occupation in each one of these planets, and she fears that it will be the same in each of the ones to come.
