David Maroto (b. 1976) is a Spanish artist based in The Netherlands. His wide-ranging practice has led him to exhibit his work on psychoanalysis at the Freud Dreams Museum in St Petersburg. His 8-year research to create a board game lead to the inclusion of his project Disillusion at the Internationale Spieltage in 2006 (Essen, Germany) and other game fairs worldwide. In 2011, he held a six-month residency at ISCP in New York, during which time he published his art project in the form of a novel, entitled Illusion. In 2012, Maroto took part in the 11th Havana Biennial and carried out a solo project in Artium (Museum of Contemporary Art, Vitoria, Spain) called Illusion-Disillusion. His work has been shown internationally in solo and group exhibitions: S.M.A.K. (Ghent), Extra City (Antwerp), Sign exhibition space (Groningen), ECAT (Toledo, Spain), EFA Project Space (NYC), Tina B Festival (Prague), TENT (Rotterdam), and W139 (Amsterdam). Currently, Maroto is collaborating with curator Joanna Zielinska in a long term research project on artist novels, called The Book Lovers, which is structured in different stages: a collection of novels written by visual artists, an online database, a number of exhibitions, and a symposium, in collaboration with M HKA (Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp, Belgium), De Appel Arts Center (Amsterdam), EFA Project Space (NYC), and Museum of Modern Art of Warsaw. He is also currently enrolled in the MFA program of Dutch Art Institute (Arnhem).
