Pavilion Stage

Negativland has been been creating records, CDs, video, fine art, books, radio, and live performance using appropriated sounds, images, objects, and text since 1980. Mixing original materials and original music with samples taken from corporately owned mass culture and the world around them, Negativland re-arranges these found bits and pieces to make them say and suggest things that they never intended to. In doing this kind of cultural archaeology and “culture jamming” (a term they coined way back in 1984), the band has pushed boundaries, sparked conversations, and opened minds. (Part of the Electronic music showcase.)
