Xue Mu is currently quaranting in her studio in Berlin and like every other artist around the world trying to adapt to the confining circumstances imposed on them by the Coronavirus pandemic since the beginning of this year.

But creativity prevails- from her little kitchen, she serves us some food for thought...
