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*LIVE ARCO. 35 years of art scene in Spain

How have the ways we do and we think about art changed in the last 35 years? What tasks shall an art fair in the XXI century meet? Are galleries relocating to the same speed as other agents in the art field? And institutions? How are collectors getting involved in all these changes? How has the role of the artist changed within these years? Are fairs and galleries becoming one of the few working platforms left for independent/multidependientes curators? We are living in a time of redefinition of art, culture, of the economic system we know and the world. It is now moment, for all of us, to rethink ourselves. These are some of the questions to be discussed in this series of crossed interviews on a TV format we call A*LIVE ARCO.

Taking part: Juan Canela, Elba Benítez, Estefanía Meana, Fernando Meana, Luis Francisco Pérez, Miguel Ángel Sánchez, Pep Vidal and Rodríguez-Méndez.

Moderated by: David Armengol, Montse Badia, Angel Calvo Ulloa and Marina Vives
