What the Body Remembers. Dance Heritage Today Eszter Salamon: MONUMENT 0.3: The Valeska Gert Museum


The Valeska Gert Museum is an imaginary museum, whose collection is made up of performative files that let us feel the wit, the grotesqueness and the provocative, creative edge of this avant-garde artist. With her influential oeuvre – a border-crossing, transdisciplinary art ‒ Gert was ahead of her time and one of that era’s greatest modern artists. Eszter Salamon and Boglárka Börcsök rethink conceptions of memory and archive. In an echo of Gert’s itinerant life they use the Akademie der Künste as a spatial obstacle course and resonator.
