In 1996 Jacques Derrida gave a lecture on the Museum of recent paintings in ny at the celebration of Antonin Artaud: Works on Paper, one of many first significant foreign exhibitions to offer the avant-garde dramatist and poet's work and drawings. Derrida's unique name, "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 quite a few asylums whereas enjoying off of the museum's nickname, MoMA. however the name was once no longer deemed "presentable or decent," in Derrida's phrases, by means of the very establishment that selected to show Artaud's paintings. as a substitute, the lecture was once marketed as "Jacques Derrida . . . will current a lecture approximately Artaud's drawings."

For Derrida, what used to be at stake was once 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 its different types. Artaud the Moma, as lecture and textual content, unearths the problem that Artaud posed to Derrida—and to artwork and its institutional background. a robust interjection into the museum halls, this paintings is an important second in Derrida's idea and an insightful, unsparing examining of a demanding author and artist.
