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.

Tania Bruguera y el arte útil

A*DESK

Una de las mejores maneras de acercarse al trabajo de un/una artista es a través de sus propias declaraciones. Esperando el inicio del taller “Arte Útil” que Tania Bruguera va a realizar del 8 al 10 de enero de 2014 en Barcelona, es un buen momento para hacer un recorrido por la trayectoria de esta artista cubana afincada en Estados Unidos. Hacemos este repaso a través de un completo reportaje realizado por el programa Metrópolis de TVE. En él, se analizan aspectos como las etiquetas que como artista ha ido recibiendo a lo largo del tiempo y que han enfatizado uno u otro aspecto de su trabajo (de artista multicultural, a feminista, política o artista de la performance).

La importancia de crear, por encima del medio utilizado o el lugar y, sobretodo, la necesidad de llevar el arte al terreno de lo real, como ella misma explica, “a hacer algo que pueda servir a la sociedad” son premisas que desde sus inicios han configurado el corpus de su trabajo.

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.
