During the research for the performance of Atlas 2, about almost forgotten dance artists from the beginning of the 20th century, I focused on the dancer and artist Egon Wüst. Inspired by private pictures and dance images, which were provided by the German Dance Archive Cologne, I created a dance solo. Through a process of reimagining five pictures of Egon Wüst I (re-)inscribed archival traces through my body with the result that archival content was re-embodied and performed by finding its way back into a new work.
