Agnes Berecz

Associate Professor


Ágnes Berecz focuses on transnational exchanges and collaborative, multimedia practices in postwar and contemporary art. Her most recent research project, Consumed by Play: The Politics of the Transformable Work of Art, published by the Kemper Art Museum of the Washington University in 2020, dealt with the participatory, ludic practices of the decade-long, transnational collaboration, Edition MAT. She is the author of the monographic study, Simon Hantaï (2013), and 100 Years, 100 Artworks: A History of Modern and Contemporary Art (2019), a singular overview of artists and their works across continents and media from the aftermath of World War I to the end of the 2010s. A lecturer at the Museum of Modern Art and a critic, Berecz regularly publishes reviews and feature articles on global contemporary art both in Europe and the United States. Her writings appeared, among others, in Art Journal, Art in America, Artmargins and the Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin as well as in many European and US exhibition catalogues.
