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.

Youtube?

Martí Manen

Pues sí, youtube es un canal “popular” de vídeo. También es una fuente de discusión sobre los derechos de imagen y un gran negocio.
Cada cual que haga lo que quiera y cuelgue sus vídeos donde desee, pero a lo mejor las instituciones deberían demostrar cierta consciencia de lugar…

Los derechos de imagen dejan de ser de la institución pública para pasar directamente a lo privado, sin concurso ni nada, ya que todo es “gratis”.

Pero en la red existen otros lugares. Lugares como archive.org, con una voluntad archivística seguramente más interesante para las instituciones y con unos términos en los contratos más aceptables, o para poner otro ejemplo vímeo.com, con más atención a lo artístico. Podríamos seguir.

Otros ejemplos: el Moma cuelga sus podcasts directamente en Itunes U, con acuerdo con Apple por el medio.

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.
