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.

Webinar: “Processes of assembly in art. Care for exhibitions” by Roberto Uribe-Castro

Processes of assembly in art. Care for exhibitions


The aim of this workshop is to familiarise participants with the protocols and procedures that are important when planning, organising and setting up an exhibition, whether is an art or a thematic exhibition.


The online workshop has been conceived and will be held by the artist, cultural manager and architect by Roberto Uribe-Castro.


At the end of the workshop, the participants will know how to approach any kind of exhibition, regardless of size or complexity, using the tools acquired during the two sessions to apply a logic that guarantees the success of the exhibition.


The steps to be followed from the elaboration of an exhibition script, acquisition of insurance, transport, reception of works, elaboration of the condition report, unpacking, storage and assembly will be reviewed. The participants will be explained concepts of assembly and installation with real examples as well as exercises.

Roberto Uribe-Castro graduated as an architect from the Universidad de los Andes and holds a master’s degree in spatial strategy from the Weißensee School of the Arts in Berlin.

He has worked as a field researcher for urban studies and as a studio manager for Doris Salcedo and Mona Hatoum in site-specific installations, collaborations that have been highly influential in his interdisciplinary and collaborative work.

As an artist his practice focuses on how the colonial past or violent historical events that persist over time in architecture and urban landscapes. Through temporary or ephemeral interventions made with materials and elements gathered at the site of intervention, he subtly alters the place allowing political discourses or forgotten historical events to emerge.

Roberto has lived in Dublin, Madrid, Amsterdam and Cartagena de Indias. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
