Sarah Baartmann was a Khoikhoi who grew up in today's South Africa. Due to her anatomical peculiarities, she was abducted and taken to Europe at the beginning of the 19th century. to be exhibited as the so-called "Hottentott Venus". She was the perfect projection screen for white, male exotic fantasies.

Martin Ambara's staging is not only about an examination of a historical figure but also about the question of the self-image of black society and the failure to confront the legacy of colonial times. Martin Ambara has already developed pieces several times together with the kainkollektiv, and now the Ringlokschuppen Ruhr is also showing his independent work.
