Everyday Communism In Slovenian Underground Music Venues
Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 18:45
Imagine you are a teenager, with nowhere to go in the evenings. You cannot attend your favourite shows but perhaps you could make use of a rehearsal space to stage your own shows with a few of your friends. Without idealizing things, I will give you some typical examples of venues in Slovenia to show how a communist moral economy lies at the heart of many underground music scenes, everyone contributing according to their ability while taking according to their need.

Anthropologists now widely agree that Homo sapiens evolved with our especially large brains thanks to unusually supportive childcare arrangements. Whereas an ape mother must care for her infant all by herself, evolving humans developed complex systems of cooperative childcare, mothers choosing to live with their own mother and other relatives in order to share childcare tasks. In this workshop, we will explore how sexual relations during human evolution underwent a series of profound changes, with male energies increasingly harnessed to provision and assist mothers and their babies. When did the incest taboo come into force, and why? How does sex in human societies connect up with economics? This session will explore such basic questions as the ultimate nature of distinctively human kinship, family life, economics and sexual morality.
