Caitlin Woolsey’s research revolves around the historical confluence of visual art, performance, and media, particularly in the mid-twentieth century in Europe and America. She is currently at work on her dissertation, “Metabolic Archive: Henri Chopin and the Sounding of Collage in Postwar Paris,” which explores how the integration of sound transformed collage practices in the decades following the Second World War.
