Drawing Conclusions at the the Louvre 10 Oct. 2000
By Karl Haendel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is both an exhibtion catalogue to a show Derrida curated at the Louvre of drawings on the theme of blindness (complete with many reproductions of works) as well as a brillant investigation into the art of drawing by dealing with blindness as evidence of 'blindness' itself in every act of looking (and of course reproduction). As stated by Derrida, "every drawing of 'the blind' is a drawing 'of' the blind." More than just an example of applied deconstruction, Derrida's reading of these drawings questions the very foudnation of western ideologies of 'looking' and 'seeing' taken for granted as self-evident by artists for centuries. By the end, one wonders who is the author, the artist, the curator?, as Derrida does more with these drawings 'for drawing' than they ever did for drawing themselves. This book is a necessity for any visual artist producing critical work in the 21st century.

Memoir or Memory? 24 Nov. 2012
By Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although Derrida can be difficult to follow sometimes, this work is extremely intriguing and thought provoking. Well illustrated as well, as should be expected considering it was the catalogue for an exhibition.

Vision of Blindness 26 April 2009
By William Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Here Derrida offers a vision of blindness, that is to say a "vision" of "blindness", or even a "vis"ion of "blind"ness. By deconstructing the very "act" of see"ing", he defers to différance, grammatology, and "éperons", that is to say, the "spurs" by which we harry, that is to say hurry, the horse(s) of structuralized condescension. Perception, that is, or "interception", or even "interperception" of vision--or more precisely, visuality, and all that implies. Reading, and re-reading, this book, we can easily understand why Derrida and his thought were so instrumental in the fall of apartheid.
