In 1996 Jacques Derrida gave a lecture on the Museum of contemporary paintings in ny at the party 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 variety of asylums whereas taking part in off of the museum's nickname, MoMA. however the name used to be 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 used to be marketed as "Jacques Derrida . . . will current a lecture approximately Artaud's drawings."

He channels Artaud's specter, speech, and fight opposed to illustration to try 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 suggestion and an insightful, unsparing interpreting of a tough author and artist.
