It is not my fault

A public intervention. In what ways is trauma shared with community? It is not my fault was a performance grappling with symptomatic guilt and self doubt following sexual trauma, specifically addressing my own experience. It appeared in the public atrium of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I sat to write and interrupt the flow of passage from one place to another. My presence sparked questions and complicated conversations about misconceptions of self blame and confusing emotions following trauma. I wanted these sensitive conversations to illuminate transgressions that exist even in the liberal environment of at Arts Institution.
