“Adventures in Illegal Art: Creative Media Resistance and Negativland” with Mark Hosler a founding member of Negativland, at the Knoxville Museum of Art, Wednesday November 12, 5pm. Presented by Students for the Study of Law & Culture at the University of Tennessee in collaboration with COPYSHOP. Pioneers of “culture jamming” (a term they coined way back in 1984), the group Negativland have lead and defined movements against traditional copyright for decades. They became a critical, high profile example in the copyfight movement when U2 (the group with Bono) sued the band to prevent a Negativland release titled U2. In 2003, members of Negativland were asked by Lawrence Lessig to help write a new kind of copyright license for Creative Commons. This collaboration resulted in the “Sampling License” - a license that allows people to create collage art and “mash-ups” (as well as other art forms based on re-used materials) from licensed works.
