ABOUT THIS SITE >>> This site is a blog as well as an archive. It gives visibility to the continues working of radical_hope, its current move to radical_house, the research project Distraction As Discipline (2016 - 2019) and the process of OTÇOE - works for passers-by, a working trajectory (2013 and 2014).

radical_house is a long term project and has a threefold nature: it presents a physical place, a framework and a logic. When in 2013 teaching and mentoring became an extension of Langsdorf's artistic practices now radical_house stems from her pedagogical experience where 'being in dialogue' with others is her main principle.

Distraction As Discipline is an investigation into enactivist principles in art and education (research trajectory at KASK School of Arts Ghent 2016-19). It considers the potential of performance art and pedagogy in general, in resisting the current and massive desubjectivation, by critically reclaiming both, attention for the moment and participation in a process.

OTÇOE - works for passers-by was the development of radical_hope's artistic practice in the city and questioned how and by whom this practice (and its bodily, social and economical aspects) is perceived. The title refers to the public of a city and to how we encounter and register most things on our way through the city: Out of The Corner of Our Eyes. OTÇOE.

Hey Bag, what are you for
Take a good song and make it worse
Remember what you see with your heart 

That, oh lord, can be made better

Hey Bag, please stay around
You weren’t made to be just invisible
When the cold is leaking out of your skin
Then you begin to make me wonder

And anytime I feel the pain
Hey Bag, remain
Don’t put the world upon my shoulders`

For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder

Na-na-na, na, na

Remember what you see with your heart
That oh lord, can be made better
