Unforgettable Hits

video 2006

In Unforgettable Hits Tralla deconstructs and criticizes the gender stereotypes of 1980s Estonian pop-songs and music videos of her youth by re-acting them. The overly macho gender stereotypes represented in the 1980s music videos are the norm of contemporary Estonian society. Thus Tralla’s ironic video is a feminist critique of the dominant ideals of gender roles in Estonia and Eastern-Europe at large.
