French photographer Patrick Cariou accused Richard Prince of copying 41 images of rastafarians and landscapes from his book Yes Rasta, which Richard Prince was using for a series of paintings and collages called the Canal Zone. A deposition is the out-of-court oral testimony of a witness that is reduced to writing for later use in court. In such a scenario Richard Prince had to explain and defend his art, his career, and his decades-long practice of appropriating images made by others. Collected and arranged by artist and blogger Greg Allen, this Q & A must be the most detailed insight about his career and work he ever gave to this day. For a maximum of almost seven hours he had to answer the extensive, confrontational questioning by the attorney of Patrick Cariou- under oath.
