László Dés: Extremely dilettantish and incompetent people are getting billions to fix this Petőfi issue

They will probably fix it for life, and then I will come with Geszti. Well, not in Víg, but in another theater. Interview.

“Should an artist take a stand, express his opinion about the world?

I have many musician colleagues who (say) “don’t say a song, I don’t have a headache”, “my audience is the whole country”, “I don’t want to divide anyone. I don’t care about that. I consider this to be flattening. You can live like this, I don’t want to live like this.

If they ask me, I will give my opinion, because I think that I put my little reputation at the service of some kind of resolution, and I think that it would be important from the point of view of the country. It makes sense, there should be more of us.

At the same time, it is not worth presenting such a thing now, because now the course rules on this matter. Extremely dilettantish and incompetent people are getting billions to fix this Petőfi issue. They will probably fix it for life, and then I will come with Geszti. Well, not in Víg, but in another theater.”
