The Malady of Writing at the MACBA Study Center launched a new line of exhibitions at that puts the spotlight on the phenomenon of artists' books that use narrative and fiction as their main means of expression. The exhibition room was transformed into a reading room, which offered visitors over 150 books, opuscula, loose sheets, essays, novels and other documents, produced by artists who were determined to find new languages and spaces for reflection for contemporary art.

The publications shared certain characteristics: aside from drawing from fiction, most of them displayed a particularly creative use of typography and design, and turned to smaller alternative, non-mainstream distribution channels. The exhibition was curated by Chus Martínez, with spatial design by the artist Xabier Salaberria.

Three projects were specifically produced for the occasion: El mundo explicado, by Barcelona-based Mexican artist Erick Beltrán; Pourquoi Malady?, by Danish artist Jørgen Michaelsen, and 60 cartas, by David Bestué and Marc Vives.
