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.

There is nothing to improve in a Happening

El lunes pasado Caterina Almirall escribía sobre Street Wall, la reinterpretación de una de la piezas más políticas de Allan Kaprow (ejecutado en Berlín en 1970), a cargo de los alumnos de A*DESK, en el marco de la propuesta de la Fundació Tàpies Allan Kaprow. Altres maneres y con la coordinación de Oriol Fontdevila desde el proyecto Arqueologia Preventiva del Espai 13 de la Fundación Miró. También hablaba de lo que, según Kaprow, es y no es un happening.

Hoy os dejamos con un vídeo que registra la lista que el artista del no-arte gravó en 1966, y en el que, entre otras cosas, deja claro que no hay nada que mejorar en un Happening: no hay ensayo, no hay repitición, no hay error.

A*DESK is a critical platform focused on publishing, training, experimentation, communication and dissemination in relation to contemporary culture and art, which is defined by transversality. The starting point is contemporary art, because that is where we come from and this awareness allows us to go much further, to incorporate other disciplines and forms of thought in order debate issues that are relevant and urgent for understanding our present.
