Artaud the Moma, as lecture and textual content, unearths the problem that Artaud posed to Derrida—and to artwork and its institutional historical past. a strong interjection into the museum halls, this paintings is an important second in Derrida's concept and an insightful, unsparing analyzing of a not easy author and artist.
