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 with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow internationally. 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.

The “critical” days

A*DESK

The Ministry of Culture of the Generalitat and has posted videos and summaries of the symposium of reflection on Catalan culture organized in mid-July: III Reflexions Crítiques. Canvis de paradigma: reptes i oportunitats de la Cultura. Can be found here.

And to take a significant counterpoint, the incisive and critical review of Jorge Luis Marzo here.

If the editorial of the latest issue of our magazine in September we announced that we will see the changes envisaged by the new government of Catalonia and Barcelona in the art infrastructure, both symposium and the analysis of them by Jorge Luis Marzo does not seem to brought very encouraging news. By now we have clearly bad news: CiU has blocked the construction of the contemporary art center of Girona. Bad start. Attentive.

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.
