Geld / Malaria! (1983, 4:00)
The women's band Malaria comes from the Berlin music scene and embodies the spirit of the 80s in this experimental video clip. Androgynous qualities, blurring of sexual identity, protest against stylized attitudes, linked with an unmistakable sense of dramatic effect were all part of the repertoire of these groups between 'Neue Deutsche Welle' and Punk. References to experimental film were obviously more important than a slick videoclip production. Malaria precedes what was later coined «girlpower».
