on reclamation texts: the tract house11/03/09
the blog, emails, pamphlets, hand-outs, instructional guides, stories, etc. are collectively a text in the making on reclamation, its history, its present, its future, its “mission,” its “message”. with that said, its worth checking out Lisa Anne Auerbach’s The Tract House.
The Tract House is a “spread-the-word” project that debuted at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore on May 31, 2008.
The Tract House tracts were written by friends, neighbors, acquaintances, visitors to this website, and friends of friends. While most popular tracts are religious, The Tract House tracts can be nearly anything— manifestos, diatribes, stories, rants, poems, or lyrics. They can be about whatever the writer finds pressing, whether it be something personal, professional, political, domestic, local, or global.
