Cui Xiuwen (崔岫闻) is a female artist from Heilongjiang who lives in Beijing. In 2004, she spent a few nights in a the women's bathroom of a Beijing nightclub, filming women as they stood in front of the mirror, arranged their bras, hid money in their underwear, discussed their clients and boyfriends and gossiped.
Cui now has a page on Tudou, where she has uploaded the video The Ladies' Room. You can watch it below. The parts with speech have English subtitles.
