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.

Hands On
(open concerts / age 0-99)

Full cycles start at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm but you can enter at any moment.
Feel free to watch, listen or take part for a shorter or longer while.

"We come and have all kind of things in our bags, there is no ideal environment for hands-on: hands move, from thing to thing, every day, we don’t pause nor wonder why. People migrate, from country to country, every day, often with great effort and against their will."

During three hours Heike Langsdorf and Ernst Maréchal are literally busy with finger exercises for Un/Settled Residency. They try voicing something belonging to this movement (difficult to discuss) by approaching things as bodily as we can.


At Antenna / Ostend: 26 May, 2pm - 5pm
Torhoutsesteenweg 291

Hands On
(open concerts / 0-99 jaar)

Sessies beginnen om 14u, 15u en 16u maar U kunt op elk moment binnenkomen.
Voel je vrij om een tijdje of langer te kijken, te luisteren of mee te doen.

“We arriveren en hebben vanalles in onze zakken, er is geen ideale omgeving voor ‘hands-on’: Handen bewegen, van ding naar ding, elke dag, we staan er niet bij stil. Mensen migreren, van land naar land, elke dag, vaak moeizaam en tegen hun wil.”

Gedurende drie uur zie je Heike Langsdorf en Ernst Maréchal letterlijk bezig met vingeroefeningen voor Un/Settled Residency. Ze zijn op zoek naar verschillende praktijken om ‘te grote’ thema’s bespreekbaar te maken door ze zo veel mogelijk te belichamen.
