Feminasty!

Chicks on Speed performed last weekend at Vienna's Gartennaukino, with Scottish artist Douglas Gordon, in a lively cross disciplinary set, part slide show, part live music performance, part dance and film presentation, with DJ Christopher Just to accompany them. Loosely begun as an artist's group that created exhibitions and hosted illegal parties at Munich's Seppi Bar in the 1990s, then students of the Munich Academy, they performed a piece for these parties -I Wanna Be A DJ, Baby- but were essentially creating a fake band, producing mock T-shirts, records and cassettes. An evolving roster of new members, and securing a record label evolved their status, to form the basis for thir multimedia explorations of today. Taking the platform to make some noises abount feminism and the 'feminasty', such as this reworked image from Guerilla Grrrls .
