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.

A*DESK

Lanzamos un nuevo número de a-desk después de algunas preguntas sobre la situación institucional y política en el sector artístico de Barcelona. Preguntas que siguen en el aire y sin respuesta, algo a lo que estamos bastante habituados. No por este motivo dejaremos de preguntar.

En este número entramos de nuevo en el análisis de lo que significa el arte y sus estructuras, los referentes (y autoreferentes) que se utilizan, los sistemas de legitimación y todo estos recursos que nos muestran lo importante que resulta pensar qué estamos haciendo. La velocidad del día a día puede conllevar que olvidemos las preguntas clave. En este número intentamos acercarnos a algunas de ellas.

Marcela Römer se pregunta sobre la institucionalización del trabajo de los artistas, Montse Badia sobre la mirada a los “clásicos” conceptuales desde las nuevas generaciones de artistas, Aimar Arriola pregunta sobre las ideas que dirigirán Hangar a partir de ahora, Paloma Checa sobre la representación del arte en el arte, y Rosa Naharro sobre la poesía en el espacio. Preguntas con algunas respuestas.

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.
