Negativland Fails to Stoke the FireBy Joshua Klein
Several of [Negativland]’s media pranks got some notoriety,but none as much as Negativland’s 1990 satire centeringon the rock band U2, a stunt that led to several years andthousands of dollars of legal trouble. Negativland emergedfrom the imbroglio not as a weakened unit but as afree-speech martyr. Though for some reason the groupnever managed to regain any of its pre-U2 momentum, itremained firm in its revolutionary anti-consumerism,anti-organized religion, anti-homogenization andanti-corporation stance.
