Attila Józsefs List of free ideas – an expedition into Hungarian Freudomarxism

In May 1936 the Hungarian poet Attila József wrote a text that radically opposed its Zeitgeist: the list of free ideas! Whilst Stalin was prohibiting Sigmund Freud’s texts in Moscow, Attila desperately continued his attempt to unite communism and psychoanalysis in this poetic self-experiment. Christian Filips and Orsolya Kalász will present their recently published first German translation of a text that is legendary and long-forbidden in Hungary where it has attained cult status. (in the ‘roughbooks’ edition, Urs Engeler). ‘A great literary project. Sad and strange, symptomatic and transgressive!’ (Jonis Hartmann, Fixpoetry)

why do you scream like that,

can you not talk softly?

Certainly

Would you care for some cheese

In Alt-Buda in the cheese dairy, there is a fine thing for you

There is no justice

There is no justice, not even that is just

working

Always working

Always working

When all that mother earth offers is enough…
