The project was inspired by the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres, a Cuban-born American gay visual artist who died of AIDS in 1996. The minimal installations and sculptures of Gonzalez-Torres can be seen as records of experiences of desire and love, and finally of illness and death.

The intimacy is exposed to the public, but as a symptom of wider social problems. Borczuch and his team take a closer look at the past intertwinement of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and political transformation, as well as the contemporary situation of the LGBTIQ+ community to reflect on how the theatre can be a site of micro-resistance towards regimes that make certain experiences invisible.

Borczuch's work, originally implemented as a theatrical performance at HAU Hebbel am Ufer in Berlin, at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art takes the form of a performative installation – an exhibition open to viewers during the gallery's opening hours as well as the performances taking place in it by Dominika Biernat, Ania Nowak, and Paweł Sakowicz.
