Fakes in the World of Ancient Art Sold Out
Saturdays, 10 am - Noon
June 8 - July 13

Fakes, frauds, and falsifications of artifacts and documents have been the bane of curators, collectors, art lovers, and dealers for millennia. So why should anthropologists study fakes? Fakes offer an ever-changing portrait of human desires and greed by providing a glimpse into the cultural values and perceptions of their makers and prospective consumers. We will begin with the antiquities market in Mexico, Central America, and the Andes and broaden our inquiry to include the Mediterranean, Asia, and Africa. Please read the introduction and chapters 1 - 5 of Faking Ancient Mesoamerica for the first session. Six sessions, $170.

Donald McVicker holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Chicago and specializes in the art and archaeology of Mesoamerica.
