With her designs
With her designs for industry, she brought contemporary design into every day culture of the newly founded German Democratic Republic (GDR). As a professor at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, she was a formative personality and influenced generations of students. Her work is an important testimony to modern design activities in the GDR and is also relevant in international comparison.
The presentation in the River Palace in Schloss Pillnitz introduces the designer both as an industrial designer and as a teacher, shows her professional network and illustrates the situation of designers in the GDR as a complex network of relationships.
