Exterra XX was a temporary feminist performance group originated in the alternative art scene of East Germany of the 1980s. To connect lyric, sound, fashion, painting and movement with each other and to defy monotonous socialist everyday life with cheeky staging resulted in stage bans. The installation makes the energy and dynamism of the group and the individual vitality visually tangible, which were reflected in the different performances. Sequences from former VHS recordings were used for the video installation and produced to a new virtual performance.
