For Derrida, what was once at stake was once what it intended for the museum to express 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 answerable 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 paintings and its institutional background. a robust interjection into the museum halls, this paintings is an important second in Derrida's suggestion and an insightful, unsparing studying of a difficult author and artist.
