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.

Workshop with Raimundas Malasauskas

POLY

with Raimundas Malasauskas 27, 28, 29 May. From 15h to 20h.

Think of a situation where everything exists, nothing is lacking, not even scarcity. There is no need to draw on shortage or blame uneven distribution of means – these are just one of the conditions or topics of a conversation. All the times are present, all the possibilities – open, all the future and past changes – in action. Everyone is a character in the making, with its beginning and end running simultaneously. Fiction is not opposed to real, city is a background and a character. When time comes to write a proposal of how to live such world you start at the beginning and end at the same time. We meet somewhere, perhaps where it was meant to be.
