A Performance by Mark Hosler. Of mythical stature in the worlds of music, performance and law, Negativland comes to New York with a film/performance/lecture presentation by one of its four members, co-founder Mark Hosler.

Negativland bills itself as a "goofy yet serious artist/activist collective of filmmakers, culture jammers, and musicians." For over two decades, Negativland has touched on critical issues and defended them in court, concepts like intellectual property, file sharing, media literacy, the art of collage, creative activism in a media-saturated multinational world, evolving notions of art and ownership, and law in a digital age. Adventures in Illegal Art features Mark Hosler as the enigmatic anchor showing Negativland's films in a video formatted lecture that is engaging, provocative, and thoughtful. Negativland becomes a subliminal culture sampling service concerned with making art about everything we aren't supposed to notice.
