German Jewish dancer, cabaret artist, actress, and artists' model. She was a pioneering performance artist who is said to have laid the foundations and paved the way for the punk movement. Gert could be considered one of Germany’s most overlooked artists.

On 18 March 1978 neighbours and friends in Kampen, Germany, reported she had not been seen for four days. When her door was forced in the presence of police she was found dead. She is believed to have died on 16 March. She was 86 years old. In 2010 the art of Valeska Gert was presented at the Berlin Museum for Contemporary Art Hamburger Bahnhof, in the exhibition Pause. Bewegte Fragmente (Pause. Fragments in motion).
