In 2012-2015 Magdalena Moskalewicz was a postdoctoral fellow for the C-MAP research initiative at MoMA, where she conducted research and organized academic programs for the C-MAP Central and Eastern Europe group. She was a founding co-editor of post in 2013, and the editor responsible for Central and Eastern European contents until September 2015.
Awarded a PhD in art history from Adam Mickiewicz University for her research into the Polish neo-avantgarde of the 1960s, Magdalena has published and lectured internationally on Polish abstract painting, assemblage, and conceptual art. Her other research interests include Eastern European art and identity, the art and culture of the Cold War era, exhibition histories, and the methodologies of the discipline of art history. She has also written on more contemporary practices, most recently for Central European Companion to Political Ideas (Central European University Press, in print.) Moskalewicz was a Kosciuszko Foundation research scholar at Barnard College in New York (2010) and a core group participant in the Research and Academic Program “Unfolding Narratives: Art Histories in East-Central Europe After 1989,” organized by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute (Williamstown, MA; 2010-2011). Before joining MoMA and post, Magdalena was the editor-in-chief of Poland’s monthly contemporary art magazine Arteon. Her curatorial projects include the Polish Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015), where she presented Halka/Haiti 18°48’05″N 72°23’01″W, and edited a book under the same title. In her scholarly, editorial, and curatorial work, Moskalewicz critically investigates local art histories and representations of national identities in order to reshape and revise dominant historical narratives.
