Battle One: Formalists vs. Conceptualists.
- Why do people still fetishize the object?

- Can we actually believe half the work that is out there?
- What has more value: objects or ideas?
Battle Two: Painters vs. The World.
- Are painters just magicians? or illusionists?
- Why do painters always make more money?
- Isn’t photography a better version of painting?
- Painting sucks…why?
Battle Three: Artist vs. Dealer
- Why can’t I believe in my dealer?
- Why are artists so fucked up?
- Dealers suck because they use the artist for their own advantage.
- Artists have no idea what is going on, they need handling.
All are welcome and encouraged to choose your weapon. At the end we will tally up the points and see who really reigns supreme. It’s a WAR ON THE SHORE!
It is possible if all works out that some of it might be recorded for Bad at Sports….also an open soap box for ranting.

Mark Staff Brandl has released a full length video version complete with illustration of his speach presented at the CAA (College Art Association, art historians organization) annual conference in Chicago this past week as well as at the Kunstschule Lichtenstein, in 2010. It concerns description and criticism of the standard conceptions and models of fine art history and the history of comics, while offering a new one model for conceiving of and teaching these histories.
Also Mark Staff Brandl gave a video interview with Columbia College while in town that is fun as well.
