You have to set the right values for the paper with the second argument when you use rotation and mirroring.

\setuppapersize[A5,90][A5,landscape]
%\setuppapersize[A5,180][A5]
%\setuppapersize[A5,270][A5,landscape]
%\setuppapersize[A5,mirrored][A5]
%\setuppapersize[A5,rotated][A5,landscape]
%\setuppapersize[A5,negative]

\starttext
\input zapf
\stoptext

The negative keyword doesn’t work for me, I even tried a minimal example with the internal function but got no result.

\setuppapersize[A6]

\starttext

\setbox\scratchbox\hbox{\framed[background=color,backgroundcolor=blue,foregroundcolor=red]{Blue test?}}

\negatecolorbox\scratchbox

\box\scratchbox

\stoptext
