a solo for future feminism
Solo for Future Feminism is the subtitle of Teresa Vittucci’s solo HATE ME, TENDER a research on hate and feminism. In her work Teresa Vittucci scrutinises one of the culturally most important female figures: the Virgin Mary. With a gentle violence Vittucci begins to unravel the queer potential of a figure which is culturally seen as epitome of purity, innocence and perfection, icon of the compassionate woman and mourning mother. Revered and given the function of Mother of God by church authorities, she has been criticised by the feminist movement as a role model full of female stereotypes. Vittucci wants to liberate her, emancipate her and rehabilitate her in her ambivalent role of unconditional love and as the ambassador of a queer feminism.

The work is deeply layered with smart humour, audacious imagery and bold political statements, and Vittucci’s performance is, well, sort of divine. – springbackmagazine.com
