SQUARE-ANGLE – Péter Kuczka

SQUARE-ANGLE – Péter Kuczka

The earth tilted, borders are being drawn in sharp angles by black ink, the purple shade of a scarf, perhaps, on top of the strict lines. If above me, if below, like an island in the sky. I live here. Budapest.
A series by Ferenc Forrai.

Péter Kuczka was born 97 years ago, on March 1, 1923.


Az egyik házban Petőfi lakott,
e tölgyek alatt merengett Arany.
Egy kis szobában József Attila
volt nagyon boldog és boldogtalan.

Az egyik utcában torlott a nép,
munkanélküli itt aludt kövön,
itt szedte fel a barrikád kövét,
ott lőttek rá Véres Csütörtökön.

Az egyik téren ringó rózsa nyílt,
a másik téren száz nyomorlakás.
A vízbe ott roppant belé a híd.
Ott ért engem a felszabadulás.

A Neu-Gebäude már nincsen sehol,
hol dédapám golyótól földre hullt.
Emitt a kórházban a folyosón
kérdezted tőlem: „Lányt vársz vagy fiút?”

Square-angle is a symbol of togetherness. The belonging and identity of nations is presented by the unique code system of the series formed by shapes and colors through the literature of the Visegrad countries. Citizens, four times: Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest. Four cities, four colors, one section. Making four cities of four countries four-angled; a common conglomerate.

The latest parts of Square-angle released on HYPEANDHYPER are about Budapest.

The parts already released can be read HERE.

Our interview made with Ferenc Forrai in relation to the Square-angle series under the title “Squares of Budapest with a view” can be read HERE.
