The aim of this study is to criticize Muhammed Siyah Kalem's miniatures in the context of Deleuze and Guttari to the idea of “nomadic culture” and the concept of “deterritorialization”. This study is important in terms of a suggestion of “intertextual” criticism from the author to the text. The research was planned and conducted as a qualitative case study. This is a case study with using of the technique of document analysis. This research conducted an interpretive approach and sought answers to “what is happening?” questions. The collected data were analyzed by content analysis. The investigation process was carried out by the researcher. Post structural criticism accepts all kinds of institutions and fields that can be interpreted as text other than written texts. According to post structural criticism, a text has complex and interrelated meanings with other texts. This study considers Muhammad Siyah Kalem Miniatures as a text. This study is an attempt to criticize these subject miniatures associating with the idea of “nomadic culture” of Deluze and Guattari and to interpret the possible apparent or hidden meanings in miniatures in the context of the concept of “deterritorialization” which is a part of the idea of “nomadic culture”. The tension, controversy and struggle scenes seen in Muhammad Siyah Kalem Miniatures suggest that these miniatures are the product of “nomadic culture” which has a defying stance. It is suggested that Muhammed Siyah Kalem's works should be dealt with Kristeva’s concept of “intertextuality”, as well as the idea of “nomadic culture” and the concept of “deterritorialization” of Deleuze and Guattari which are poststructuralist thinkers
