Catalogue accompanying the exhibition Chinese is a Plus, a video installation "with two alternately running videos, each 18 minutes in length… Sylvie Boisseau and Frank Westermeyer show the complex relationships the students have with the (foreign) language Chinese behind the slogan "Chinese is a Plus", a catchphrase the two found in a German advertisement for employment."
