A video installation developed after a two-week performance symposium in Chongqing (China).
After arriving in China, I quickly found myself in culture shock and withdrew more and more to the hotel room. There I worked on a collage of photos and objects. I wrote the stories in English, had them translated into Chinese and then "painted" them myself on the slips of paper - much to the amusement of the Chinese participants in the workshop (I think I made some funny mistakes).
I made the second part of the work, a video, when I was back home in Germany, reflecting on my time in China.
