Usos y control del espacio público

Esta ha sido una semana llena de contrastes. Desde A*DESK, Rosa Naharro se hacía eco de la exposición Playground. Reinventar la plaza, en la que se hace especial hincapié, vía Marcelo Expósito, en la “imaginación radical de la política” y la idea de recuperar formas carnavalescas como forma de resistencia.

Mientras tanto, la ciudad de Barcelona vivía unas jornadas de extrema tensión tras el desalojo de Can Vies.

No cabe duda que la definición de lo común, los usos y el control del espacio público son algunos de los principales puntos de tensión que van a contribuir a la definición de un futuro que cada vez se está pareciendo más al que imaginó George Orwell en su novela 1984.

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.
