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 with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow internationally. 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.

Open session with Eloy Fernández Porta


Reading cultural commentary via emotions.

Open session of the workshop “You know how you ought to feel. Cultural transit in the era of the media implosion”, directed by Eloy Fernández Porta

With: Laura Aixalà, Caterina Almirall, Mirari Echavarri, Marla Jacarilla, Lucía Piedra Bárbara Sánchez and Marina Vives.

Alienated or sensitive, abject or relational: behind recent discourse about the arts there always throbs the question of emotion. Which is the emotional code prioritized by artistic discourse? What type of culture does it call upon and how does it generate a work?

Free, open session: Wednesday 5 December at 18.00.
