New Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation

  1. 1. John Hejduk’s Wall House 2 “I believe in the social contract therefore I teach. I believe that the University is one of the last places that protects and preserves freedom, therefore teaching is also a socio/political act, among other things. I believe in books and the written word, therefore I fabricate works with the hope that they will be recorded in books. I am pragmatic and believe in keeping records. I believe to record is to bear witness. The book I wrote, Victims is to bear witness and to remember. I believe in the density of the sparse. I believe in place and the spirit of place.“ -"Cooper Union." John Hejduk Works. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 June 2015.
