In 1996 Jacques Derrida gave a lecture on the Museum of recent paintings in big apple at the get together of Antonin Artaud: Works on Paper, one of many first significant overseas 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 a variety of asylums whereas enjoying off of the museum's nickname, MoMA. however the name was once now not deemed "presentable or decent," in Derrida's phrases, through the very establishment that selected to express 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 show 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 try to carry the museum responsible for attempting to confine Artaud inside of 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 heritage. a robust interjection into the museum halls, this paintings is a vital second in Derrida's inspiration and an insightful, unsparing interpreting of a difficult author and artist.
