ADVENTURES IN ILLEGAL ART

CREATIVE MEDIA RESISTANCE AND NEGATIVLAND

Over the last 30 years, Negativland’s work has touched on a number of issues that are very much in public view these days - creative anti-corporate activism, media literacy, intellectual property issues and evolving notions of ownership and law in a digital age, the art of collage, artistic and funny critiques of mass media and culture, pranks and media hoaxes, and so-called “culture jamming”.  In an engaging, candid manner, Mark Hosler - founding member of Negativland -- walks the audience through issues of media-literacy, creative and humorous anti-corporate art/activism, the role of advertising and corporate power in our lives, intellectual property issues, and the evolution of art, law and resistance in a media saturated multi-national world.
