Attila József Picnic


In autumn 2011 the Hungarian government decided to continue its struggle against the remaining of communism or things that may remind about it. After numerous renaming of the streets in Budapest and an attempt to remove the statue of liberty build during the communist times, the government decided to continue the fight with statues. This time its choice was made for the statue of a revolutionary proletariat poet of the 20th century, Attila József , who was a member of a communist party for a short time somewhere far away from the lawn near the Parliament building where it is now.

There were a couple of symbolic mainstream events against removal of the statue where people were holding speeches and listening for concert. We decided to make our own action - a picnic to commemorate Attila Jozséf. We like him because his life and worldview is unique and revolutionary. His poetry writing manner is full of provocation and grotesqueness, and his worldview is rebellious and anarchist.
On November 20 we took the food (mostly dumpster dived at the market on Saturday) we were cooking over the weekend and the FreeShop to the lawn with Attila Jozséf statue. There were some people there already, and during our stay there  more people came. We were just hanging out, eating and sharing food, and also talking to the interested people who were passing by. 

"I am paying attention that your lifestyle is just sitting here in the street on the stone..!"
