The House of the Freedom of Speech – A forum for information rights

After six decades the Hungarian state will soon retake possession of the Táncsics Prison from the US government, the building that used to be the prison of the hero of the 1848 Hungarian revolution. The House would assume its proper place and function in Hungarian history if it were devoted to one of the basic values of democratic states and a fundamental demand of the 1848 revolution: the freedom of speech and the rights and liberties that are closely related to it. OSA is proposing a public space that will serve as a museum, a memorial site, a venue for cultural and artistic events, an educational center and a forum for debating current issues related to the theory and practice of free speech and its relatives.

With this proposal OSA would like to initiate public debate and invoke additional suggestions, alternative ideas and critical comments that might contribute to our plan.
