The video art piece is based on an interview which Jakub Šimčik made with a South Korean artist about racism during the outbreak of the Corona virus. Her story runs as a voice-over on top of an image of a pair of hands washing themselves excessively with hand detergent. It is installed inside of a bouquiniste box which was created collectively by a group of German speaking artists in
residence at the Cité Internationale des Arts during the winter and spring of 2020. The video art piece was originally supposed to be shown in a mobile group exhibition that had to be cancelled due to the virus related lockdown in France.
