Charles Jencks

In this brief clip, Charles Jencks introduces a talk by saying that he “may be accused of overstating everything.” Adding, “I think laughter is very important about things that one can’t do anything else about.” Jencks warns the audience that he will plagiarize ideas from his book, which he considers embarrassing. He mentions camp and quotes from Susan Sontag’s essay “Notes on ‘Camp.”
