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

Presentación el pasado martes a las 18:30 en el Instituto Italiano de Barcelona de la prarticipación del Pabellón Catalán en la Bienal de Venecia 2009.

Además de las presentaciones de Josep Bargalló (director de l’Institut Ramon Llull) y Valentín Roma (comisario de la exposición) destacamos un par de citas y cifras ofrecidas durante la rueda de prensa y adjuntamos el propio dossier de prensa.

Josep-Lluís Carod-Rovira: “En aquests temps de crisis presentarem Catalunya des de la creativitat: que Catalunya és un país capdavanter en art, que és un país d’idees i transgressió.”

Presupuesto: Producción de la exposición, 500.000 €; libro-catálogo, 200.000 €; web, 5.000 €; el espacio es una cesión del ayuntamiento de Venecia sin coste de alquiler, pero es un espacio en restauración y el Institut Ramon Llull se hace cargo de su adecuación por un valor de 40.000 €. Josep Bargalló señaló que se trata de un presupuesto aproximado que ronda los 750.000 €.

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.
