The "impossibility" of the theatrical world by the civilian government

The "impossibility" of the theatrical world by the civilian government

To the margins of tomorrow's demonstration ...
There is a lot of talk about the theater world these days.
Let’s see what the real facts are, what the numbers show that don’t lie:

1. Number of theaters in Hungary

2. Number of theater performances in Hungary

3. Number of theater visits in Hungary

4. State support for theaters in Hungary

5. All cultural expenditures of the budget in Hungary

Everything else is just an empty, meaningless lie. The government has created an opportunity for actors to create, learn, renovated plenty of theaters and more theaters are being renovated.

Thank YouDr. Péter HoppálMr. the data!

Free SzFE - from lying and orbánphobia it would finally be "free"!

The headquarters of the National Cultural Institute were handed over today in Lakitelek. The more than four thousand square meter building was built with the support of the Hungarian government for almost 3.2 billion forints. The new building is also a milestone in terms of the performance of the tasks of the National Cultural Institute, the field of public culture and the cultural organizations of the Carpathian Basin.

On the façade of the headquarters with classicist features, ribbon-like decorative elements and friezes present the most important moments of the creation myth and Hungarian prehistory, based on the work of Sándor Makoldi. The building carries the values ​​and symbols of organic education both on the exterior facade and in its interiors. The new headquarters of the National Cultural Institute was designed by János Szabó, the plaster facades of the facade were designed by architect Antal Grátz, and the interior design plans were made by István Szenes. The headquarters was built in about two years.

Sándor Lezsák, Vice-President of the Parliament and President of the People's College Foundation, greeted at the handover, emphasizing that the investment is supported by the Hungarian budget, taxpayers and legitimate expectations.
"This building serves the sacred cause of Hungarian culture, the community life and everyday life of the Hungarians in the Carpathian Basin, so that they can have successes and holidays," said Sándor Lezsák, emphasizing the unity of content and form, the intellectual strength and professional integrity of the institute. its practical value is symbolized by the handed over building, and then stressed that quality work is needed for our descendants to make a worthy account of the inauguration anniversary in decades to come.

On this occasion, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán sent a letter of thanks and a wish for blessing from Zoltán Balog. In his letter, the Prime Minister emphasized that the Hungarians have exceptional historical and cultural treasures.

“Our task is to appreciate, preserve, and enrich all of them as worthy heirs to this wealth, while honoring our ancestors and setting an example for our descendants. The most important task of the National Cultural Institute is to help communities recognize and preserve their own values ​​at the local level, proving that a thriving cultural life can be outside the capital. It is no coincidence that the headquarters of the institute were handed over in the countryside, in a place of historical significance, in the cradle of a free, independent, democratic Hungary, which will now be home to all Hungarian culture across borders, Viktor Orbán said in his letter.

After the Prime Minister's praise, Péter Fekete, Secretary of State for Culture, and László L. Simon, János Halász and former Péter Hoppál, Secretaries of State for Culture, signed their statements in the guest book of the National Institute of Culture.

In his greeting, Bishop László Kiss-Rigó said, by analogy with the epidemic, that cultivation, culture and culture provide protection against the intellectual virus, and that the employees of the institution work for the mental health of the people. Magdolna Závogyán, the managing director of NMI, said about the building that evokes the spirit of reform-era Hungary, that it is a symbol of a common future, the heart of the renewable public education profession. The handover is a celebration of creative work and the fruit of it is a change of scale, which also serves as an example in an international environment and can become a place of professional pilgrimage.

After the greetings and the blessing of the building, the new center was handed over by cutting the national color ribbon. Later, Péter Fekete, Secretary of State for Culture, gave a speech in the attic rose garden of the headquarters.

Bells could be picked up by those beyond the border

In the roof garden of the building there is the Tower of Remembrance, which symbolizes the unity of the Hungarian nation, and the bell of the Hungarians placed in it, which was inaugurated on June 4 this year, on the 100th anniversary of the Trianon peace dictatorship. As a sign of togetherness, at the inauguration of the headquarters, five cultural organizations representing our foreign compatriots received the same sister bells as the Lakitelek, which will be ringed at the same time as the domestic bell at 15:13 (at the time of signing the constitution).

Enyedi is dictating, but in the meantime he has accepted the one billion state money

Enyedi is dictating, but in the meantime he has accepted the one billion state money

It would be time to consider who can receive state aid and who cannot. Those who are openly anti-government and are lying to the foreign press by dictatorship, causing significant economic and political disadvantages to Hungary, should not be supported with taxpayers' money. These are not “artists” but DK activists who use the money we receive for agitprop activities.

Reporter's interview with the film director.
Ildikó Enyedi: We seem to be in punishment, I accept.

Reporter: Sorry, he says they are in punishment. How punished is the person who can make a film for 600 million forints, and here I am thinking of you exactly.

Ildikó Enyedi: I got a lot more, I got a billion for my last film. Not me...

Reporter: So this is not freedom or dictatorship, where filmmakers are given one billion forints while they are constantly talking about the existence of a dictatorship in the country?

Ildikó Enyedi: We all add up. It is the job of the cultural government and the people it entrusts to fund a valid culture from it. That is what they were commissioned to do. And I'm doing my job.

A tale about "bled" theaters

Theaters across the country are being renewed one after another

A tale about "bled" theaters

Since 2010, almost HUF 15 billion more money has been allocated to support theaters, and with the support of the government, theaters are being renewed in the countryside and in the capital. Many theaters are still under construction, and plans are underway to renovate another theater building.
Compared to 2010, the government spends two and a half times more on culture, this year the amount will reach HUF 584 billion. This year, more support was given to theaters in Budapest than before. Theaters in the capital can manage HUF 500 million more in 2020, and the government has provided 30 percent more funding to rural theaters and 20 percent more to independent alternative theaters than in the previous year.

Not only is there more money to run theaters, but theater improvements are also underway. Theaters are also being renewed in Budapest. The government will spend HUF 2 billion on the modernization of the National Theater, from which the stage technology will be renovated. Renovation works are also underway in the Andrássy út building of the Hungarian State Opera House. With the support of the government, the Erkel Theater (HUF 1.8 billion) and the Thália Theater (HUF 1 billion) were renewed. The National Dance Theater (HUF 4.6 billion) received a new building in Millenáris Park equipped with the most modern theater technology. The largest institution in the Hungarian cultural area is also enriched with the Eiffel Workshop, which is about to be handed over, and a warehouse center, where there are opportunities for both rehearsals and performances. This investment will amount to HUF 27.6 billion. There is already a government decision to support the Modern Opera investment and to provide the National Dance Ensemble with a permanent playground, for which we will provide nearly 700 million forints. Among the tasks of the years ahead is the renovation of the József Attila Theater. Within the framework of the Liget Budapest Project, the construction of the Városliget Theater is also planned. But the fate of the theater became questionable after the new Budapest city council elected in October said it would not ask for cultural investments in the Liget building.

Rural theaters are also being renewed in turn under the Modern Cities Program. The Gergely Csiky Theater in Kaposvár was renovated inside and out with an expenditure of HUF 9.5 billion. In Nyíregyháza, the Rózsakert Outdoor Stage was renovated for 1.2 billion forints. At the Csokonai Theater in Debrecen, HUF 6.35 billion, at the Győr National Theater, and at the II. Renovation works are being carried out in János Pál Square for HUF 22 billion and in the Petőfi Theater in Veszprém for HUF 9.28 billion. The Hevesi Sándor Theater in Zalaegerszeg will also be renewed. With the support of HUF 4 billion, the renovation of the Szigliget Theater in Szolnok and the preparations for the renovation of the Katona József Theater in Kecskemét began.

The financial financing of theaters will also be more transparent. The Cultural Act passed last year creates a transparent operating model, a crystal-clear, predictable situation and responsibilities in the maintenance of theaters. Municipalities are still free to decide whether or not to maintain their own theater as a voluntary task and, if so, to operate it only under municipal or mixed (state and municipal) reservations. This creates a completely clean situation: the maintainer is responsible for the operation of the theater. Municipal theater will operate from municipal funds, state theater from state funds, mixed-theater theaters will operate from state and municipal funds.

"The change of regime is starting in our profession now" - Attila Vidnyánszky

Share this, not the # FreeSzFE images!

"The change of regime is starting in our profession now" - Attila Vidnyánszky

THEMandinerconducted an interview with Attila Vidnyánszky.
📌The case of the Performing Arts has long been transferred to the political space, the students are manipulated by the same forces that moved the theatrical demonstrations in December, says Attila Vidnyánszky, the newly appointed chairman of the SZFE board of trustees about the days-long war. According to him, no one can seriously think that all students and teachers agree with what is happening on Vas Street now, only many people do not dare to take their views. The National Director also talks about being privately supported by many great old men. We asked Attila Vidnyánszky.

🇭🇺This is the beginning of the school year, and at the University of Theater and Film Arts, not only would the moods have subsided, the emotions are growing. The students occupied the university, the entrance was closed so that the members of the board of trustees could not enter the building. They have been protesting for days, with a series of dismissals. László Upor, the vice-rector of SZFE, decided without consulting the board of trustees that they would not start teaching this week.

📌Despite expectations, the academic year did not begin at the university. The senate resigned, after Gábor Zsámbéki and Gábor Székely Tamás Ascher, Ildikó Enyedi and Gábor Máté also announced their resignations, and several lecturers and leaders refused to continue working until their demands were met. How will this be the beginning of the year?

🇭🇺We asked the Deputy Rector to justify his decision and inform us of its legal basis. And so far we have only heard orally about the resignations, we have not seen any documents yet. I had previously asked the Chancellor to bring a paper on resignations, but so far we have not received anything. This is, so to speak, contradictory.

📌The other day, however, I finally managed to sit at a table with the university leaders. So what did they stay in?

🇭🇺We actually had a meeting with the university management a couple of days ago. We have stated that the most important thing is to start education properly. We all agreed on that. I asked if we were with the teachers, László Bagossy said that there were some problems with the redundancies. We agreed that the current leaders - László Upor, Gábor Németh and Bagossy - would replace the missing teachers. Now, however, we had to face that
they voluntarily decided not to start teaching yet.

📌In Kossuth Radio, they say they think differently on almost every issue. What are the contentious issues, what do you represent, and what are they?

🇭🇺We represent change, we want substantial transformations to take place at the university. I stress everywhere: students and teachers who are already in the system can do their job with peace of mind. Students will receive the teachers they have been hired for and will accompany them to graduation. However, the leaders of the university are refraining from any change, and all their actions so far prove that they do not want to move in any form.

📌When you talk about change, for the time being, there are only conjectures and gropings about exactly what it covers. Would you summarize what you would be talking about?

🇭🇺We would open the university. We would expand capacity, launch additional classes. Other teachers would be included in the system and even new courses would be launched. There is also literally a lot of emphasis. We definitely want to make substantial progress internationally - in both the theatrical and cinematic lines. We would invite guest teachers, take part in international festivals, think about joint projects. But most importantly, we also want to connect with the part of the profession that the university has little contact with today - all the more so because it is the larger part of the theatrical sphere. This also applies to the film world. We want to work more closely with the film industry. I would very much like to see one or more conferences in the near future, in front of the full public in the theater and film professions, so that we can discuss the direction of the university education system in the coming years.
You need to start planning your new campus to finally have a state-of-the-art infrastructure to serve your training.

The transformation also means an expansion of the budget - it is also in the interest of the current teaching staff that this serves more diverse training. These things should be the subject of constructive discussions and consultations. Until then - I cannot stress this - we need to work with the current teachers, we need to start teaching.

📌“National and Christian values ​​should also be given a place in the university,” it is said many times. It's just that there are those who don't understand that. Let's put this right! What does this mean exactly?

🇭🇺It means that when we teach, we pass on a set of values, whether we like it or not. When we choose compulsory reading or a play, add a text to a speech exam, or offer a topic to the directing students, it’s always about value transfer, and that’s okay. But just
there will be a much more colorful education at the university if it includes a wide range of ideas, beliefs, methodologies and worldviews.

Only then can proportionality, a reflection of social diversity, develop. The last teacher to think along the lines of Christian, conservative values ​​in acting was Imre Kerényi. You have to watch him get fired. More than a decade.

📌The injured party complains that they were suddenly and unexpectedly affected by the model change. They say there were no prior consultations, no dialogue, and they also accuse them of not having the same amount of time to switch as other universities. In summary, they mostly complain about the way this process went. Are these grievances justified?

🇭🇺I first heard this in a conversation with Minister Palkovics, which was attended by representatives of the profession. I asked back: why, if there was a transition from January as for other universities, wouldn’t it be the same? Of course it would be the same. If it were a year from now, the same thing would happen in a year. The need for change has been a problem for decades. There has been constant controversy in the profession since the change of regime, but also at the university.
We knocked on those doors for many, many years, asking in countless forms for an opening. But they shut themselves up.

Previously, theaters were involved in a much wider range of college training, but now the range of these theaters has narrowed. The Katona József Theater is a significant workshop, but it is not right to be overrepresented at the university in this proportion. Gábor Máté, who was today the director and deputy rector of the Soldier (when the rector was Tamás Ascher, who also worked as the chief director of the Soldier for a few years at the same time as his university position) himself admitted in an interview that it was “unhealthy”. But then who had the responsibility to change that? And whose is it today?

📌Is there any way to meet the requirement that members delegated by the university senate be included in the board of trustees?

🇭🇺I think that's how the lineup has become realistic now. We are now there with negotiators of the right weight sitting opposite each other. Even so, we have a very difficult process ahead of us. In principle, SZFE itself supports the change, as László Upor talks about organic transformation, but this process is imperceptible from the outside.

📌Has there been any dialogue with SZFE-HÖK?

🇭🇺They did not come to the last trial. I met them once, at a meeting of Minister Palkovics. Ten of their representatives were present, but what happened there between us can be called everything, not just dialogue. It was a machine gun fire on their part and an ultimatum set. The shocking thing is that the students who should force change the most, who should be the most open, close. The ultimatums that have been formulated are about keeping everything the same.
Also, the physical lock that has just been created is about not wanting to allow any change.

This is the most painful for me. I hope that the arguments, the plans outlined, will affect them as well - but I can’t even say them.

📌Were you able to get into the building? Have you tried to get in at all since the entrance is barricaded?

🇭🇺No. I'm not going there. Why should I provoke the situation? This is not necessary now, but to create an opportunity for dialogue.

📌In an interview with our paper earlier, Zoltán Rátóti said: "this process will have an even deeper point". Is that it? What is the worst case scenario you are expecting?
The worst case scenario is if education does not start.

🇭🇺We're right here now. Obviously, when one takes such a step, one thinks about the direction in which the story might move. For example, I’m a kind of naive person, so until the last minute, I was hoping it wouldn’t be this scenario, but obviously that’s what we expected. In fact, there is no element of what has happened so far that we would not have thought would happen. It is impossible to have a professional dialogue in this way, as it is currently in every political space. It hurts that students don’t want to see this. Although they declared that they did not need politicians to protest, when they said so, they were already there.

📌As they have been showing up ever since, from András Fekete-Győr through Ágnes Kunhalmi to Ákos Hadházy. Have you settled on an initiative again?

For the opposition, it is a straw that can be clung to and a story that can be built according to their political interests.

In this, tools are students, like it or not. That's what they need to see. They also tried - very rightly - because they asked politicians not to show up, but in vain. The same scenario prevails as at the December demonstration, with the performers almost the same. And Amnesty International is helping students prepare for the strike.

📌What is a Plan B if you can’t start education?

🇭🇺Then the board of trustees representing the maintainer is responsible for organizing the education.

📌Is a resting point expected in the near future?

🇭🇺To do this, the university should treat the issue as a professional matter. As long as everything is going on in a political space - my fear is that for a long time to come - the moods will not calm down. God forbid I am wrong.

📌The open leaves are showering from both directions. Everyone sends a message to everyone. Why don’t they drop these conversations among themselves? Or is it political forging capital, location?

🇭🇺Look, there was no regime change in our profession. It's happening now. It's that simple. Thirty - or, if I want, seventy - years of repressed thoughts are now coming to the surface. From both sides. It is quite shocking and touching to me that everyone is showing solidarity with me. Great old people call and support. I wouldn’t be able to do that alone if I didn’t feel so much social support behind me. What’s painful is that the stories I get five or ten a day from the past decades of Performing Arts still don’t sound public, they just stay in my emails, in my memory.
People still dare not stand up, the dam is not torn.

📌Are they afraid to speak?

🇭🇺There’s a militant-toned group who aren’t many, but are capable of constantly poisoning professional public life. Anyone who speaks out of their circles and directs the debate to a professional level is under pressure - so to speak, subtly. There was the earlier story of Kiss-B. With Attila, who does great, full-house theater. When he was on the table and “almost dismantled,” Attila Dolhai could no longer stand it and spoke next to him. The total fire that hit him eventually made him back down. It’s about no one daring to stick his head out. My foreign friends are already writing to me if what they hear is true, and on Friday the Berliner Ensemble also canceled their participation in the MITEM. I naively imagined that with them we could demonstrate that although we obviously think differently about the world, it has a place together in the common cultural space. That’s why we invited them, that’s why they came for three years, their principal, Olvier Reese, even held a master class for students in Kaposvár - much to our delight. They also stepped back into the political space - a great pity.

📌Students from Kaposvár also formulate open letters and stand out among the signatories of the petitions. There are criticisms that not everything worked cloudlessly there, and they fear that a similar situation will arise at SZFE. Are the criticisms or the backlash justified?

🇭🇺This is a separate topic. If I were to say that I am completely satisfied with the training in Kaposvár, it would not be true. The current structure works with security, but our plan, the essential element of change, has not been built. I had to realize that in the current accreditation system, we cannot start the complex training that I have seen convincing examples in at the School of the National Theater in Strasbourg and in Moscow as well. However, we have good relations with the profession, which is clearly proven by the fact that
there have never been more students from Kaposvár in Budapest than now.

Just as the relationship with rural theaters, which make up a significant part of the profession, has become extremely close. Since the institution did not have any international presence before me, the fact that today there is an ongoing relationship with the Moscow Artist Theater or the Piccolo Teatro school is an important gunfire. What changes started in Kaposvár could be discussed separately once.


🇭🇺I would like to highlight two things: Károly Eperjes and György Cserhalmi, who taught together at that school. SZFE cannot show such a thing. In Kaposvár you can think differently. That is why it is quite okay for some students to sign; if they feel they should. You can speak in Kaposvár, as well as in the National Theater. Therefore, no one is retaliated against. This is the difference between the two ways of thinking. We are much more open than those who constantly promote their openness.
Doesn’t anyone seriously think that every student and teacher at the Performing Arts agrees with what is happening on Vas Street now?

Why don't they speak? Why don't you dare to take their opinion? These are really worrying issues.

📌How do you cope with this period?

🇭🇺Very difficult. This is not my profession, I am not a politician, but my sense of professional responsibility prompted me not only to express my opinion years ago, but to be a participant in public life acting in accordance with my values. I am often told to direct and not to politicize, but if politics means participation in public affairs, then to take on a role as an intellectual in this, if not a duty, but certainly not a shame. Of course, I feel really good as a director in the rehearsal room. It’s a very strong handrail that there’s creative work as well, so thank God, we often manage to break out of this whole thing. In recent years, I have been able to talk to Bánk bán, Rocco and his brothers or the Thirteen apple trees in many ways about what I think of the world, and now I am very happy to prepare for the arrangement of Romeo and Juliet. And there is my strongest support, my family. I have a background that protects, helps me regenerate, and binds my spiritual wounds. This is a wonderful thing.
There is so much support coming from both the civilian and professional worlds that you have to go through this.

🇭🇺I feel our faith is amazingly strong.

We protect our Christian culture!

We protect our Christian culture!

Since 2010, 3,000 churches have been built or renovated in the Carpathian Basin. It is important for the Hungarian government to protect Christian civilization.

Hungary has regained its future through its work since 2010, and the obvious sign of this is that "we Hungarians are not closing churches and schools" but building new ones. All churches can count on the help of the government in the future as well, knowing how important work the churches have done and are doing in preserving the nation and Christianity.

No policy can tell people how to live, but at the same time, every responsible policy has a duty to create meaningful life opportunities for people.

Within the education system, the choice of ecclesiastical education is a free choice of values ​​for all citizens, which responsible policy must not only respect but also support, and support, our government.

In the last 10 years, 120 new churches have been built in the Carpathian Basin and a total of 3,000 have been renovated. In the life of the Hungarian churches, "there has been no example of such prosperity and renewal in such a short time in the last hundred years."

In addition, Hungarian communities across the border are building a total of 160 nurseries and kindergartens with the support of the motherland.

Everywhere, modern, well-equipped institutions are being created that are able to fulfill their profession in the 21st century and prepare our children to cultivate Hungarian and European Christian culture.

Thirteen exact lists of claims were read by the Acting students

What??? This is serious?

Thirteen exact lists of claims were read by the Acting students

Video: watch this farce!

If these are the “products” of the University of Theater and Film, then the change is really worth it! Come on, Mr. Vidnyánszky!

Baby! Most of what you can claim is a pack of butt wipes. Going to university is not a fundamental right, it is a privilege. We, the taxpayers, will cover your free education. We who work in factories, construction sites, lands, trade, tourism, the public sector now.

Take it back from the face, kids! You could be glad that you could hysteria in Hungary, because in a "other normal country" you would have been smoked from there by a local law enforcement organization like TEK.

Meanwhile, it turned out that the leaders of SzFE did not even want to negotiate with the board of trustees, they do not have an interest in starting the school year, they need to believe. Well we recommend that the board of trustees start recruiting new teachers and new students! There are a few dozen normal, talented educators and a few hundred patriotic students in this country who will study with humility and honor because they understand that this is not their fundamental right, but their privilege to go to college.

Vidnyánszky: The management of SZFE did not want to negotiate with us
September 1, 2020 9:47 PM
“The university is still refraining from any change,” said the chairman of the board of trustees.

"From the first moment, the university management did not want to discuss cooperation with the board of trustees," said Attila Vidnyánszky, chairman of the board of trustees of SZFE, on ATV's Straight Speech program on Tuesday.

The university is distancing itself from change
Attila Vidnyánszky said that the university management excused itself from the negotiation proposed by ITM, and the students gave only ultimatums. As he put it, “the language of dictates, of ultimatums, was merely present. An hour later, I asked them to talk now, because maybe we came here to exchange ideas and thoughts, ”said the chairman of the board of trustees.

He added: “The university is still refraining from any change” According to Attila Vidnyánszky, “the university operates in a very closed system, in many ways unfair. In many ways, he was separated from part of the profession, he was very, very separated, ”he said.

Didn't the Senate officially resign?
Attila Vidnyánszky was asked about the resignation of the senate. Answering a question, the chairman of the board of trustees said, “we have not received any official document on this, we have not received anything officially, and it would be very good to clarify this situation. That is why I asked us to meet László Upor (the vice-rector of the institution - ed.) Tomorrow, I hope he will succeed, ”he said.

The art students barricaded themselves

The art students barricaded themselves

Nothing proves better that a left-liberal brainwasher has operated here for decades than that these students stood by Gyurcsány and attacked Attila Vidnyánszky.

There is something wrong with the brains here, because these young people think that the university will work (not on his own money, but on the taxpayers' money) as they invented, as Ferenc Gyurcsány and the left-liberal narrators would like. Well, this will not be the case, it is enough that roughly two generations of anti-Hungarian actors and public figures were raised by this institution. Now there will be no complete change of attitude, but in addition to liberal "values", national, patriotic values ​​will also appear. Anyone who has a problem with this can "go" from there.

The Message of Numbers to these students: By going to college, you are not testing a favor! There will be 250 normal, patriotic students in your seats. It was enough to constantly just tolerate the seemingly civilian, in fact political, attacks of the left! Stand on the corner of someone and tell them: You can pull it off if you don’t like something!

After Monday night’s demonstration, students at the University of Theater and Film Arts occupied the university building and barricaded themselves.

The leadership and senate of the University of Theater and Film Arts resigned on Monday, claiming that the foundation, which took over the maintenance of the institution from Tuesday, “deprived the board of all fundamental powers”.

The university students then convened a demonstration on Monday night. According to an article by Origo, the demonstration took place in an angry channel throughout, and after its completion, the protesters occupied the university and barricaded themselves in the building.

Speaking to ATV, one student said that from here, “students decide what leaders, instructors to admit, and who to keep away from the institution.” About two hundred and fifty camps were camped in the building, according to a television channel.

The fact that Ferenc Gyurcsány made a harsh threat against Attila Vidnyászky recently contributed to the tense mood: “Vidnyánszky and his colleagues will remain as long as Orbán. Then they fall. In fact! They will be groundbreakers in every sense, ”he wrote on the community page of the fallen prime minister after the director general of the National Theater was appointed head of the SZFE foundation.

In the meantime, more than 32,000 signatures have been collected due to the threat of Gyurcsány, so currently the ratio is 250: 32,000.
We are not afraid!

Attila Vidnyánszky: We want to build, not destroy

Attila Vidnyánszky is the target of an immoral, left-liberal political attack


Attila Vidnyánszky, director of the National Theater, commented on the fact that there had been indecent attacks from the left after he was appointed chairman of the board of trustees of the foundation that maintained the University of Theater and Film Arts (SZFE).

Asked about reactions such as Ferencé Gyurcsány's statement that "with the departure of the current cabinet, it will be" ground-breaking in every sense, "the Kossuth Prize-winning director replied:" The background behind the conflict expects such speeches. . "

Attila Vidnyánszky emphasized that "the fact that there is an open threat from the leader of the opposition also frightens and frightens him".

He added that he is deeply concerned that the part of the theatrical profession that calls itself a Democrat goes without saying such a statement. Those who used to argue and protest for freedom of speech, thought and art did not raise their voices. They appropriate the concept of freedom, but this Bolshevik threat is released to their ears.

"It turned out again, it was revealed: the left-liberal elite measures by double standards," the director of the National Theater stated, and then they turned to the reasons for Ildikó Bánsági's contract.

“There was a telltale and sad sentence in his statement that no one noticed. He said he was happily contracted to the National, but he soon had to realize that professionals he had been doing well with before had turned away from him, not talked to him. Typical: whoever does not conform to the expectations of the narrow circle of the left-liberal elite is excluded, from one moment to the next it turns out that he is no longer so talented. There is a lot of pressure on my actors from this circle, but everyone who works at the Nation. Ildi Bánsági has endured so far, ”said Attila Vidnyánszky.

Returning to the transformation of the SZFE, the chairman of the board of trustees stated that it was not a question of higher education, but of political and ideological warfare.

“The main subject of the debate around SZFE - political-ideological - is that in addition to left-liberal thought, I emphasize: in addition, the board of trustees represents the appearance of other ideas, principles, related theories, practices and aesthetics in training. And that seems unacceptable to today’s leadership of the university. That is, they do not make it a higher education, theatrical, or film professional matter. But political. In this political game, students are used as a tool, ”the director declared, adding that political instigation and advancement of students is not ethical on the part of any teacher, as students are the most vulnerable.

In the following, we can learn from Attila Vidnyánszky that he has already resigned from the position of Deputy Rector of Art of the University of Kaposvár. Judit Csáki, the former head of the theater department in Kaposvár, the director of the National Theater, said shocking things:

“The memory of Csáki is selective, and the fact that János Mohácsi and Attila Réthly, directors and teachers, eventually have to leave the university because they have become unworthy to deal with young people, also says a lot about the inner world of the department he leads. The students were beaten in front of their eyes, causing injuries that healed after more than eight days, for which a final judgment was handed down in court, and they would have to pay hundreds of thousands of forints in compensation. Nor is it true that Judit Csáki would have won in her labor lawsuit against the university, because the verdict did not oblige the university to be reinstated, and she would have received the money for damages without a lawsuit. ”

At the end of the conversation, Attila Vidnyánszky outlined his plans for the future of Performing Arts.

“I would like to mention three things: capacity building, for which we hope resources will also be available soon. Closer cooperation with the film and theater professions. And the planning of the new campus starts, ”said the chairman of the board of trustees, who emphasized:“ The goal is for SZFE to release independent professionals and artists who are proud of their national culture. Those who do not drift, who proudly and honestly accept their different values, opinions, and who accept others. ”
