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.

Palabras clave en media respuesta. ¿Economía de medios o es que todo va hacia lo mismo?

…The ambition is to turn it into something that could be open all year, and where seminars and workshops initiated by various nations can be held. We also want to create a library, research centre, a bookshop and a better cafeteria. Most importantly, perhaps, although this will not be done by summer, we want to turn de Biennale’s incredibly interesting archive into a kind of academic institution.

Exhibition curator and art critic. Yes, after Judith Butler it is possible to be several things at once. He thinks that questions are important and that, sometimes, to ask means to point out.
