This review of Sylvère Lotringer’s Mad Like Artaud is worth reading, but unfortunately the review is uncritical of “facts” stated by Gaston Ferdière. (Of course, Lotringer ‘s book is great and I highly recommend his lecture at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, too.) “Artaud didn’t wash”? Not according to Cécile Schramme! In my translationContinue reading “Link: Is Ferdière Reliable?”
Excellent lecture on Antonin Artaud, given at the Walker Art Center. Lotringer has done so much to raise awareness of Artaud in English-speaking cultures.
