Marcus Verhagen wrote his doctoral dissertation on visual culture in France in the late nineteenth century. Still working on nineteenth-century art, he taught in the nineties at universities in both Britain and the States. Working primarily on contemporary art in the years since 2002, he has written more than seventy articles and reviews for art magazines such as Art Monthly and Frieze. He has published in several periodicals, including Representations, New Left Review, Third Text and Afterall. Much of his recent work revolves around globalisation; he has, for instance, written articles on migration and tourism as crucial concerns in contemporary art. His book Flows and Counterflows; Globalisation in Contemporary Art, published by Sternberg Press in 2107, has been reviewed in ArtReview, Third Text Online, Critique d’art, and New Left Review.
