Some of the performative elements in Reappearance have been developed after a series of works called The Valeska Gert Monuments created in collaboration with artist and performer Boglárka Börcsök

Reappearance is inspired by Valeska Gert’s works such as Modedame (1917), Kupplerin (1920), Pause (1920), Orgasm (1922), Gruß aus dem Mumienkeller (1926), Versammlung (1931), Schlummerlied (1950’s) and her autobiographical book Ich bin eine Hexe. Kaleidoskop meines Lebens (1968)
