Immersive space "You can talk to me" @ Tipsy Art

Sexual harassment and sexual abuse cases in the press are growing more topical than ever before. We believe that each of us would want to support survivors of sexual harassment and abuse, as well as help them to raise their voices and to overcome their pain.

However, the question remains whether their communities, their relatives, their friends and each of us in society are truly ready to listen and understand survivors’ experiences in a way that allows them to feel secure in sharing their stories.

Victims of sexual harassment and abuse not only suffer the physical and psychological injuries of incidents, but also face the victim-blaming language and behaviors of other people, ranging from their closest friendships to invisible strangers on the Internet.

“Did she dress sexy?”, “Why did the boy resist so weakly?”, “What did you do to provoke the perpetrator?”, “Did she make the story up?”, etc.

Unfortunately, this language, behavior and attitude of victim-blaming is common to everyday life. It appears in comments on social media, under stories of victims or survivors, and even in neighborhood gossip.

“You can talk to me” immersive space invites you to step into a journey of bravery and courage. The exhibit displays various works of art by contemporary artists, representing different dimensions of the issue of victim-blaming. On this journey, you may even realize that you are part of the problem.
