Caroline Schopp


Caroline received her BA in German Literature and Art History from Harvard University, where she wrote her thesis on the figure of the library in counter-monumental sculpture and prose in Germany and Austria at the turn of the 21st century. Supported by a DAAD scholarship, she returned to Berlin for an extended stay, completing her Masters in Kulturwissenschaft at the Humboldt Universität with a thesis on the cultural history of scissors and the relation of cutting practices to image making in Western religious and medical contexts. Her dissertation on two “groups” of artists working in Vienna (the so-called wiener gruppe and the Aktionisten, 1948-1969) is taking shape around questions of artistic collaboration, language, and action as analysis.
