A*DESK is a Barcelona-based international critical platform focused on publishing, training, experimentation, communication, and dissemination in relation to contemporary culture and art, defined by transversality. Its mission is to actively vindicate the value of critical thought and to generate debate around contemporary culture and art.

Every month guest editors define the theme and the texts of their publications. They also curate seminars, courses, workshops, advisory services, and specific projects to help strengthen critical thinking as a generator of new knowledge and new values.
