Nimzo-Indian4.Qc2 c5 5.dxc5 Bxc5 Trends 2013

From TWIC 952
Black’s hedgehog style waiting game quickly induced white to weaken the kingside after which a kingside attack decided the game.

Black has the kingside under siege but white seems to be holding on for now. How should black continue?

Quebec op inv. Montreal CAN (1), 21.07.2012[Yip]

Critical Position
Black has a pair of knights but white has a pair of bishops(and doubled c-pawns). The question is how to best exploit the knights? What do you suggest for black?
