Kulturhuset, Stockholm – 2015

Love me not too much, love me good!

San Valentine’s Day become a contemporary and commercial ritual: What kind of love do we celebrate in this day? Hollywood love: beautiful but false? Love like a property rights? Narcissistisc love? that transforms people into things. Love for ’our people’, who can end up in segregations? Love for ’our country’ that historically generates war and exclusions?

Love can also be evil. Under the feeling of love, loving people can destroy others. But even the lack of love can have terrible consequences for people. The religions spread peaceful and loving messages and talk with double tongues when only refeers to they peer. Love is love is god.
