In 1996 Jacques Derrida gave a lecture on the Museum of contemporary artwork in big apple at the get together of Antonin Artaud: Works on Paper, one of many first significant overseas exhibitions to give the avant-garde dramatist and poet's work and drawings. Derrida's unique identify, "Artaud the Moma," is a attribute play on phrases. It alludes to Artaud's calling himself Mômo, Marseilles slang for "fool," upon his go back to Paris in 1946 after 9 years in a number of asylums whereas taking part in off of the museum's nickname, MoMA. however the identify used to be now not deemed "presentable or decent," in Derrida's phrases, by means of the very establishment that selected to convey Artaud's paintings. in its place, the lecture used to be marketed as "Jacques Derrida . . . will current a lecture approximately Artaud's drawings."

For Derrida, what was once at stake used to be what it intended for the museum to convey Artaud's drawings and for him to lecture on Artaud in that institutional context. pondering over the performative strength of Artaud's paintings and the relation among writing and drawing, Derrida addresses the multiplicity of Artaud's identities to confront the modernist museum's valorizing of originality. He channels Artaud's specter, speech, and fight opposed to illustration to aim to carry the museum chargeable for attempting to confine Artaud inside of its different types. Artaud the Moma, as lecture and textual content, finds the problem that Artaud posed to Derrida—and to artwork and its institutional heritage. a strong interjection into the museum halls, this paintings is an important second in Derrida's proposal and an insightful, unsparing analyzing of a not easy author and artist.
