> DESCRIPTION

Lou Scheper-Berkenkamp (1901-1976) studied at the Weimar Bauhaus under Itten, Feininger and Klee and worked in the wall painting workshop. Since 1925, when her husband, Hinnerk Scheper, was a teacher at the Bauhaus in Dessau, she had been actively involved in the work of the Bauhaus stage under the direction of Oskar Schlemmer. At the same time, she created works of fine arts, fanciful pictures of imaginary world travels, and a profusion of illustrated letters in the form of highly creative miniatures combining texts and images that fascinated her friends. Less known is her postwar work as an illustrator of children’s books and in the area of architecture and colour. The colour scheme of Scharoun’s Berlin Philharmonic, for example, was based on a concept by Lou Scheper. This comprehensive presentation at the Bauhaus Archive is the first solo exhibition of her work.
