biography


Tomaso Binga was born in 1931 in Salerno (IT). She currently lives in Rome (IT).

Tomaso Binga (aka Bianca Pucciarelli Menna) is the artist's pseudonym, used to challenge the privileges of the male world with irony and displacement.
She was a Professor of Theory and Method of Mass Media at the Academy of Fine Arts in Frosinone. An active cultural organizer, she has directed since 1974 the cultural association "Lavatoio Contumaciale" in Rome, and since 1992 has taken part, as vice president, in the management of the "Filiberto Menna" Foundation in Salerno.

Her practice involves collage, typewriting, painting, performance. She deals with verbal-visual writing and is among the leading figures of Italian phonetic-sound-performance poetry.
