The Zürcher Diskuszjonen (in the text also occasionally Zürcher Diskußjonen or Zürcher Diskuszionen ) was a journal published by Oskar Panizza in the publisher of the same name, which appeared in three volumes from 1897 to 1900.
It was initially published in Zurich , after Panizza's expulsion there, Paris , where the old name was retained. Panizza also wrote most of the contributions himself under the pseudonyms Louis Andrée, Hans Dettmar, Sven Heidenstamm, Hans Kistenmaecker, Jules Saint-Froid, Sarcasticus and with the sigle ***. Some names of other authors are known, however, wrote Franziska Gräfin to Reventlow , Léon Bazalgette , Ludwig Scharf , Heinrich Pudor and the Russian immigrant Ria Schmujlow-Claaßen for the Zurich Discussjonen .
The magazine represented basic individual anarchist and atheist beliefs and attacked the authoritarian state , the Catholic Church and bourgeois moral concepts with violent polemics and satires . In addition to literature and art, topics included religious, erotic, moral history and political essays, satires and stories. The articles include such unusual titles as The Pig in a Poetic, Mitological and Moral History Relationship or Christ in a Psicho-Patological Illumination .
Like the title of the magazine, the articles were written in the phonetic orthography typical of Panizza . The edition was a maximum of 400 copies, which were printed by Jakob Schabelitz . The magazine was financially supported at times by the German patron Otto von Grote, who later turned away from Panizza.
