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.

Estados de excepción

A*DESK

A*DESK presenta una nueva edición de A*LIVE, nuestro formato presencial y audiovisual en el que debatimos temas de actualidad.

Con A*LIVE: Estados de excepción buscamos plantear un debate alrededor de la situación a la que nos hemos acostumbrado a vivir en las democracias occidentales. Básicamente, asumir la reducción progresiva de las libertades individuales y democráticas en aras de una legalidad que no hemos elegido directamente y una seguridad a menudo mucho más porosa que lo que dichas leyes podrían proteger.

Queremos hablar de ello con Marina Garcés, filósofa, ensayista y profesora, que moderará el acto, Imma Prieto, comisaria y docente, Valentín Roma, comisario, escritor y director de la Virreina y Francesc Torres, artista e investigador

A*LIVE: Estados de excepción tendrá lugar en la nueva Escola Massana (Pl. Gardunya, 9. Barcelona) el miércoles 20 de diciembre a las 18h (hasta las 19.30h).

 

A*DESK, Independent Institute of Criticism and Contemporary Art, is dedicated to learning, publishing and research related to the criticism of contemporary art. Taking the view that critical thought makes individuals free, its mission is to defend actively the importance of criticism: to generate debate about contemporary art, to enable each individual to establish their own opinion and by doing so promote culture.
