Zvi Hecker: Two Strips gallery talk (October 9, 2015)59:59

Zvi Hecker talks with Eric Owen Moss on the opening of Hecker's Two Strips exhibition at the SCI-Arc Gallery. Hecker describes the medieval cities of his youth--Krakow, Samarkand--as contributing to his sense of himself as a building of fortresses, places that protect people. He stresses that the needs architects address have not changed, but the end is never clear at start: "A good artist never knows what he does, but he has to do it very professionally." Hecker characterizes his his drawings as a means of transport to an uncertain destination. Adding that, "The colors are to seduce the Muses." Hecker goes on to describe the Jewish School in Berlin as "a small city for children."
