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.

Red Conceptualismos del Sur

David Armengol

Bajo el título de “Reactivaciones poéticas políticas”, el Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía organiza hoy lunes y el próximo miércoles un seminario centrado en los proceso de investigación y redefinición del arte latinoamericano contemporáneo llevado a cabo por La Red Conceptualismos del Sur, un amplio grupo de artistas, comisarios, historiadores e investigadores de otras disciplinas procedentes de México, Perú, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brasil, Colombia y España que trabajan conjuntamente en dicho estudio desde 2007.

Un punto de encuentro dedicado a la revisión histórica del poso conceptual en América Latina – fundamental en países como Argentina o Brasil – y a su lectura en presente y en relación a otros contextos. Un análisis historiográfico sobre la memoria y la pervivencia en la actualidad de ciertas prácticas artísticas que tiene mucho que ver con nuestro propio contexto, tradición y herencia conceptual.

David Armengol is an independent curator, who tries though contemporary art to establish emotional ties between artistic practices (his own work) and the music scene (his passion). He has worked with sound projects in exhibition spaces and has programmed concerts within art events (Emak Bakia, Za!, Balago, Bradien, Kludge, Zink Tank and Bedroom, amongst others). He’s a great admirer of Will Oldham.
