In 1996 Jacques Derrida gave a lecture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on the occasion of Antonin Artaud: Works on Paper, one of the first major international exhibitions to present the avant-garde dramatist and poet's paintings and drawings. Derrida's original title, "Artaud the Moma," is a characteristic play on words. It alludes to Artaud's calling himself Mômo, Marseilles slang for "fool," upon his return to Paris in 1946 after nine years in various asylums while playing off of the museum's nickname, MoMA. But the title was not deemed "presentable or decent," in Derrida's words, by the very institution that chose to exhibit Artaud's work. Instead, the lecture was advertised as "Jacques Derrida . . . will present a lecture about Artaud's drawings." For Derrida, what was at stake was what it meant for the museum to exhibit Artaud's drawings and for him to lecture on Artaud in that institutional context. Thinking over the performative force of Artaud's work and the relation between 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 struggle against representation to attempt to hold the museum accountable for trying to confine Artaud within its categories. Artaud the Moma, as lecture and text, reveals the challenge that Artaud posed to Derrida—and to art and its institutional history. A powerful interjection into the museum halls, this work is a crucial moment in Derrida's thought and an insightful, unsparing reading of a challenging writer and artist.

This is the first official guidebook to the site of Ancient Corinth published by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in 50 years. Fully updated with the most current information, color photos, and plans, this new edition of the guide to the archaeological site of Corinth is an indispensable resource for the casual tourist or the professional archaeologist. Two large-scale maps provide an overview of the site, and are keyed to discussions of the major monuments. The guide begins with a history of Corinth and its excavations, and continues with a tour inside the fenced area of the site, from the Temple of Apollo to the Bema to the Fountain of Peirene and more. The final section describes the monuments outside the fenced area, including the Odeion, the Theater, and the Asklepieion. Short bibliographic notes lead the reader to fuller descriptions of monuments, objects, and concepts. Interspersed between descriptions of the monuments are topographical notes and discussions of special topics such as the geology of the area, Pausanias’s description of the city, St. Paul’s visits, and prehistoric Corinth and the Corinthia. Text in Modern Greek”
