[Video]: Brendan Cowell’s Subjects of Conflict

A fascinating, rambling discource on what makes good art, from the fascinating, rambling Brendan Cowell. As one of Australia’s most recognisable actors and playwrights, Brendan works across the spectrum of TV, film, and theatre. His play Rabbit, was the recipient of the 2003 Griffin Playwriting award for most outstanding new work, and a second play ‘Bed’ won the 2001 Patrick White Playwrights award. Masking a keenly erudite mind behind an affably blokey personality, Brendan’s address at the 2011 Archibald Prizes turns into an insightful, illuminating discussion on why we are drawn towards that which is ‘wrong’.
