Adjunct Assistant 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. In 2019, she published the book, 100 Years, 100 Artworks: A History of Modern and Contemporary Art" (Prestel), a singular and decidedly non-comprehensive 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 is the New York correspondent of the Hungarian art monthly, Műértő, and she 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. Berecz received her PhD at Université Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne; in addition to Central European University, Critical Theory and Visual Culture, Budapest; Université Paris I/Panthéon-Sorbonne, DEA en histoire de l’art; and received a BA and MA from Eötvös Lóránd University, Budapest. She teaches at the History of Art & Design Department of Pratt Institute.
