    Exterra XX which was a feminist performance group that lasted several years and emerged from the alternative art scene in the GDR in the early 1980s In defiance of everyday life under socialism the group lent individual dreams provocative artistic forms that were combinations of poetry sounds clothing painting and movement In the beginning the actions were held in private homes or were shown as Super 8 films Showings were occasionally prohibited but as the GDR fell apart performances became more and more frequent Exterra XX s performances touched on politically explosive themes relating to the collapse of the GDR and the ensuing search for a new identity new values and a new direction The group consisted primarily of Verena Kyselka Monika Andres Tely Büchner Monique Förster Gabriele Göbel Ina Heyner Angelika Hummel Birgit Quehl and Gabriele Stötzer It disbanded in 1994 Courtesy Verena Kyselka Document media Video colour sound 13 07 min Issue date 1990 1993 Relations Gabriele Stötzer STÖ 1 Tags collectivity fashion glamour femininity masquerade music pleasure Archive Signature KYS 1 Back to selection Complete Archive About the project Partners Imprint Contact Find us on facebook abstraction activism aggression aging appropriation authorship be coming beauty body control
