Brave New Hygiene, 2020 

We are constantly given advice and instructions about how to wash hands – a major barrier against spreading infections. Using the simplest means of hygiene – the soap, we are protecting both ourselves and our loved ones. We are washing away doubt, problems and danger. Handwashing has become a ritual. The soap is now a field of interpretation regarding both the existence of the community and the issue of how to deal with a crisis. / Maria Nalbantova, Sofia, April 14th, 2020
