Miss Universe is one of many alter egos used by the artist Catti Brandelius. With the help of the tiara-wearing self-appointed Miss Universe, Brandelius is investigating politics, art and feminism. Music is an essential part of many of Catti Brandelius´art works - Miss Universe was originally a band member in the band Doktor Kosmos.
On the underground (2001) is a song and a video about prejudices against people from different social classes and backgrounds. The video is part of the Moderna museet permanent collection, and is screened here at SSE in cooperation with Filmform.
