NOT MY PIECE – postcapitalism for beginners

(Copyright GreeceForSale)

We hear about the end of the capitalist economic system which is at the roots of our societal life in the news every day. For others, as the fate of numerous Greeks shows, this is already the reality. Even in the US, well informed economists prepare their emergency packages and buy lots that have their own water wells and pastures. Rumor has it that the system could collapse over night.

NOT MY PIECE is an introduction into the world of postcapitalism*, step by step elaborating on its very notions, directly implemented on and next to the stage. In this choreography of services, complex economic relations find a simplified form. They are the material for a farce with a high degree of truth: surprising, funny and committing you to think it over.

TINA – There Is No Alternative was a Margret Thatcher’s slogan…
