A small storefront in Hamburg: in the display window stood a chair on which passersby periodically sat and held up a sign. On it, the sitters confessed their inner shame to people on the street: »I’m ashamed of my selfishness,« »I’m ashamed of my shyness,« or »I’m ashamed on a daily basis.« Thus, a very intimate emotion became a public matter that sometimes went as far as self-accusation.
The display window showed humans as goods or products, and viewers also became active participants. Who knows, in some way it may have been therapeutic for both of them. (In collaboration with Frank Restle.)
