Borghesia is a Slovenian band that had its heyday in the eighties.Read More...
Its members were/are Aldo I., Lado J., Borut K., Niklas S., Dario S. and Tom T.
The band/group was formed 1982 in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, by some students as a spin-off of the experimental theatre project "FV 112/15". They had their own place where they performed and arranged concerts. Among other things Borghesia organised Laibach's first public appearance.
Borghesia's image is antiauthoritarian and anti-nationalistic. However, they emphasise different forms of submission and coercion, not just political, but also sexual by nature. Being part of the militant gay scene of the 80's Borghesias visual image, for example on their record covers, is very explicitly homosexual and has sadomasochistic undertones.
