Time as Matter (15/05/2009 - 31/08/2009) is the title under which the MACBA presents the new works acquired by its Collection, which can be seen throughout all of the museum's exhibition areas. Rather than offering a chronological or encyclopaedic reading, this exhibition focuses on the paradigm shifts that have structured contemporary art since the 1950s.

Time as Matter also reflects the new lines of interest and research behind the new stage that the MACBA embarked on in 2008. It combines work around the idea of documents as art with the acquisition of art works that are significant in our history.
