Edit Sasvári (*1962 in Dunaújváros, Hungary), art historian, has been Director of the Kassák Museum in Budapest since 2010. She studied Hungarian Language and Literature, History and History of Art in Hungary, and museum curator studies at the Institut für Kulturwissenschaft, Vienna University (1994-96). She has been working in the museum field since 1988. Her main areas of research are historical modernism, the avant-garde, and art-related cultural policy in the 1960s and 1970s. Under her leadership, Kassák Museum has become a dynamic institution for avant-garde art, working to create new platforms for regional collaborative practices and research. It also engages in contemporary work focusing on questions of historical modernism and the avant-garde. Since autumn 2014, Sasvári has been leading a group of young researchers in the Kassák Museum. The group’s objective is to make a comprehensive study of Hungarian visual art of the 1960s and 1970s in the Central-Eastern European context.
