The Clark – Invisible Hands with Margaret S. Graves

In this Research and Academic Program lecture, Margaret S. Graves (Indiana University / Florence Gould Foundation Fellow) discusses craft skills in the Middle East. These skills are usually portrayed as dying out in the nineteenth century, but were in fact redirected toward a new market generated by the colonial project: the faking, forging, and fictionalizing of antiquities, especially ceramics.
