Miklós HARASZTI: Guest-book entry about Tibor Hajas’s reading action (1973)

Freedom Industry Broadcast, Channel 4 – reading action and happening by Tibor Hajas

I am sorry that I am the first to write a note here, but as I see, there are no notices yet of tonight’s events, so I have to announce (and then slash) Tibor Hajas’s event.

The audience tried to get over itself almost heroically, so there were only a few snobbish sighs and bothering guffaws. The tying together of the participants and the text read out loud formed a good union (closed by the burning of the ties). The previous net game had been external compared to this block. The event creator (Tibor Hajas) was shaking with nervousness. One has to think of the tension of the text and the ties to be burned subsequently even after the event. Everyone could consider themselves positive because they were tied up, and it’s a question how many were offended (those were the ones who felt really good) by being called upon in an exemplary way to burn the ties.

Miklós Haraszti, 21 July 1973.
