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.

Verano, veremos…

A*DESK

Antes la temporada artística acababa con el fin del cole o la universidad y volvía a empezar hacia octubre. Con la llegada del turismo (especialmente en una ciudad como Barcelona) parece que la cosa cambia. Las habituales exposiciones de verano han sido sustituidas por platos fuertes de la temporada. Un breve repaso por el verano de exposiciones en Barcelona parece manifestar este cambio: Duchamp, Picabia y Man Ray en el MNAC; Francesc Torres en el Macba; u Olafur Eliasson (flamante premio Joan Miró) en la Fundación Miró. De ellos hacemos repaso en este último número antes del descanso de agosto, también de la exposición de Momu y No Es en es Espai Montcada y de la bienal SITE Santa Fe. Nos despedimos con ello hasta septiembre, cuando volveremos con algunas novedades en la web de A-Desk. Mientras esperamos que lo que queda de julio y agosto sea tranquilito, después de un año lleno de movimientos que parece no han acabado…
Buenas vacaciones, aquellos que las tengan.

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.
