Małgorzata Misniakiewicz

Małgorzata Misniakiewicz is an art historian and freelance curator, focusing on inter-local perspectives in her research of socio-political contexts of contemporary art and the legacies of the  east-central European post-war avant-gardes. Her PhD thesis (Courtuald Institute of Art, 2018) analyses networked art of the 70’s - focusing on mail art in Poland - through the ideas of political dissidence, and social and geopolitical transformations. It approaches artistic cooperation, exchanges and network in Polish neo-avant-garde art in the context of socio-political  transformations between 1968-1982 and the democratic opposition in the country. In her curatorial practice she works mostly with neo-avant-garde and contemporary art, focusing on video and photography. She was the collections’ curator at Wroclaw Contemporary Museum (2017-2019) and has curated exhibitions and programs in collaboration with ArtTransparent Foundation, ArsCameralis Festival, Wroclaw European Capital of Culture among others. She was an associate lecturer at the Courtauld, has written catalogue essays, edited publications, and organised conferences. She holds a postgraduate diploma in Management of Art and Culture from Warsaw School of Economics (2014).
