Jutta Voigt discusses the desire for a different life in East Germany. In the foreword of her book she writes, “The history of Bohemians in East Germany is one of new beginnings and disappointment, of avant-garde and indifference. But also one of the love of the game and the power of presumption. Bohemians in the East chain smoked and drank red wine, their favorite being the best there was, Egri Bikavér, or Bull’s Blood from Hungary.” Jutta Voigt studied philosophy in the 1960s at the Humboldt University in Berlin and was a part of the Bohemian scene in Prenzlauer Berg.
