Bullying takes place in many forms – and whether it is on the playground, in school, in the workplace, in relationships, in terrorism, gang membership or war, it is all based on the same dynamics: a power imbalance and aggression that does not belong between humans.
An offender‘s act of apologizing can bring an element of healing to both the offender and their victim – yet many people are never taught how to make apologies, and do not realize the transformation that can happen when apologies are done sincerely.
I’m sorry / VIENNAwill be the first video installation of its kind. Through advance publicity, we will invite people of all ages, who representing any form of bullying, to volunteer to answer six questions on camera:
Who were you?
Who are you now?
Who do you want to say “I’m sorry” to?
What did you do?
What was the effect?
What do you want to say now?
It is our hope that people representing a broad spectrum of bullying and injustice will come forward, including those who have hurt others with childhood bullying, corporate bullying, relationship bullying, systemic injustice, racism, misogyny, LGBTQI+bullying, and cyberbullying.
The segments will be edited together and made available as a complete unit to show at Vienna Art Week on November 16, or for as long as Museumsquartier prefers.
All volunteers will be treated with utmost respect, sensitivity, and compassion throughout the process.
We are working to destigmatize the act of apologizing. Humans make mistakes. We all do.
It is our hope to create versions of I’m sorry with volunteers in other major cities across the globe, with Vienna Museumsquartier premiering this groundbreaking work.
I’m sorry is created by Chase Masterson and author/screenwriter Bob Harris.
