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.

E  - Lots of stuff
Mount Tackle is a movement in three parts for young and old.
There is no ideal perspective, maybe scan around, discover, just hang out ... Mount Tackle consists of lots of stuf. Things can be touched or left alone. Sometimes we are in the dark and fragile, take care.

NL - Veel spullen
Mount Tackle is een beweging in drie delen voor jong en oud.
Er is geen ideale kijkpositie, ga misschien op verkenning, relax een beetje ... Mount Tackle bestaat uit veel spullen – je mag die aanraken of met rust laten. Soms zijn we in het donker en kwetsbaar, take care.

F - Beaucoup des choses
Mount Tackle est un mouvement en trois phases pour jeunes et moins jeunes. ll n’existe pas de perspective idéale, déplacez-vous, délassez-vous ... Mount Tackle est fait de beaucoup de choses qui peuvent être touchées ou laissées de côté. Parfois, nous nous retrouvons dans l’obscurité et sommes fragiles, take care.
