In conjunction with Penn's 2012-13 "Year of Proof," this proseminar explores forgery, reproduction, and questions of authenticity in history, art, and film. We will read The Man Who Made Vermeers (2008) and Passing Strange (2009), watch The Return of Martin Guerre (1982) and The Thomas Crown Affair (1999), and study contemporary attitudes toward appropriation art by Sherrie Levine and Hank Willis Thomas and multiples by Salvador Dali and Thomas Kinkade (tm), Painter of Light.
