The Tract House
The Tract House is a "spread-the-word" project debuting at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore May 31, 2008. As part of the "Cottage Industries" exhibition, The Tract House will be distributing free tracts to the public.

The Tract House is located at 123 Saratoga Street.
The Tract House will be open June and July, 2008. Wednesday – Saturday, 1–5pm.

All tracts were designed by Roman Jaster.
They can be downloaded as PDFs from TheTractHouse.com website.

The tracts were written by friends, neighbors, acquaintances, website visitors, 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.

All tracts were designed by Roman Jaster. Tracts were written by: Lisa Anne Auerbach, Sue Auerbach, Trista Beard, Morgan Beeby, James Benning, Naomi Bloom, Laynie Brown, Heather Cameron, Ian Chang, Gretchen Eisner, Jacob Fabricius, Frau Fiber, Amely Greeven, Dan Griffiths, Vi Thuc Ha, Fritz Haeg, Shane Hassett, Marc Herbst, Jen Hofer, Michael Ned Holte, Steve Hughes, Natalia, Jaster, Roman Jaster, Tony Koerner, John Jota Leaños, Marie Lorenz, Susan Lutz, Daniel Marlos, Michel Martinez, Kelly Marie Martin, Chrissie MacKinnon, Jeni McKenna, Keith Mayerson, Aleksandra Mir, Susan Morgan,  Suzanne Oshinsky, Timothy Otte, Michael Parker, Kenneth Pietrobono, Praba Pilar, Linda Pollack, Joasia Raczynska, Saibh Riot, Matt Rusicigno, Laboratorio Saccardi, Stephanie Smith, Gail Swanlund, Federico Tobon, Christina Ulke, Otto Von Busch, Jocko Weyland, Alison Wilder, Dana Winrow, Andrea Zittel.

Gallery visitors were encouraged to peruse the many tracts and take home what they wish. It is hoped that the tracts will educate, activate, infuriate, obfuscate, titillate, inspire, upset, and irritate. The tracts can be treasured or passed on, crumpled in disgust or venerated, folded up and put through the laundry, or left on a car windshield.
