The Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) opened to the public on November 28, 1995. Since then, it has forged an international reputation as a model in the field of contemporary art: the substantial growth of its collection now makes it possible to chart a path through the principal references of the art of our times, while the lines of work it has developed have positioned it as a key centre for research and reflection on artistic activity.

The Archive and Library at the MACBA Study Center, which opened its doors in December 2007, expand the Museum's scope by strengthening its role as a center for research, debate and dissemination of contemporary thought. Documents preserved at the Study Center are structured into holdings and collections, and include the papers of individuals and entities, artist's books, posters, photographs, invitations and pamphlets, etc., as well as reference books, magazines and audiovisual documents.
