Artist Statement:

    “Adventures In Illegal Art” is a 90-minute storytelling and film presentation by Mark Hosler, founding member of Negativland, with Q and A to follow. No lawyers were harmed in the making of this event. Pranks, media hoaxes, media literacy, the art of audio and visual collage, creative activism in a media saturated multi-national world, file sharing, intellectual property issues, evolving notions of art and ownership and law in a digital age, artistic and funny critiques of mass media and culture, so-called “culture jamming” (a term coined by Negativland way back in 1984)…. even if you’ve never heard of Negativland, if you are interested in any of these issues you’re sure to find this funny and thought provoking presentation worth your time and attention.  Video: Negativland – Adventures in Illegal Art | A Performance by Mark Hosler
