Lea Hopp  is a visual artist who is based in Berlin.  

After studying in Berlin and Strasbourg, Hopp has worked in several theater and performance productions. 2017-2021 she curated events (Volksbühne Berlin, PACT Zollverein, HMKV Dortmund, Various Others Munich) with the queer feminist Label FAM_.

She was Dorothea Schlegel artist in residence at the cluster of excellence temporal communities: literature in a global perspective, where she presented her film Rengashis’ Room at Literarisches Kolloquium Berlin.
Currently she works as a videographer at Deutsche Oper Berlin and teaches at the Bauhaus University Weimar.  

Her works, characterized by filmic, photographic and performative elements, deal with the provisional, the casually commonplace and structures of play. She is interested in modes of storytelling, human bodies as moving archives and the process of identity formation. In her films and photographic work, which often contain essayistic elements, she engages with questions of social dynamics and the oppressive character of systems of signification – combining a documentary approach with explicit fictional elements.

Open for photo and video inquiries and commissions. If you are interested in working with me, just drop me a note.
