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.

The third CASC at KASK worksession -- (collaborating with the Conservatory) -- was and still is obviously expanding its initial form(at) ... it becomes House of Ear, an immersive and interactive sound installationcurated by David Helbich configured in this context together with Joris Blancaert.

Een productie van GAME (Ghent Advanced Master Ensemble)
en CASC@KASK (research trajectory / Heike Langsdorf 2016-19).

Gecureerd door David Helbich

Concept: David Helbich & Joris Blanckaert

"Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." 
(Audre Lorde, dichter en activist)
The House of Ear is het klinkende equivalent van een detox kuur, een workshop ‘zelfzorg door het gebruik van je oren’. Michel Foucault’s concept van de ‘zorg voor het zelf’ maar ook instagrambeelden van komkommerschijfjes, voorzien van hashtags zoals #selfcare, #selfcaresunday en #metime treden in verbinding met esthetische expressie.
Voor de gelegenheid tovert GAME de artiestenloges van De Bijloke om tot akoestische behandelkamers. Daar ontvangen de muziekmakers van GAME u met de nodige ironie en ernst.
