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.

Reconociendo lo desconocido, inventando lo que ya existe

A*DESK

Para muchos agentes del no-lugar artístico, cuestionarse por la realidad, preguntarse por lo que hay y sobre todo, lo que podría haber, es una situación indisociable de su modo de estar en el mundo. Algunos, consiguen incluso avanzar con esta manía y convertirlo en su profesión.

Escritor, comisario y pensador inquieto que se mueve entre muy diversos intereses y ámbitos vitales y de investigación, Malasauskas ha repensado formatos (expositivos y televisivos, entre otros); se ha obsesionado con la idea de “reinventar” para finalmente darse cuenta de que todo (por muy fragmentario y desarticulado que parezca) puede acabar siendo reconocible. Antes de ver y escuchar a Raimundas Malasauskas en directo, , en apenas 10 días, repasamos algunos momentos destacados de su quehacer. Con una entrevista en la que reflexiona sobre un proyecto televisivo llevado a cabo en CAC TV, donde pone énfasis en la idea de reconocimiento y con un extracto de su último libro, en el que se desvela como un magnífico contador de historias.

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.
