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.

ON COMPASSION AND RESISTANCE
 
Vrijstaat O. (Ostend) and the Art Triennial Beaufort ‘Beyond Borders’ (edition V), with the cooperation of Stroom (The Hague) and deBuren.
 
Artists, researchers, scientists, writers, opinion makers, architects, urban planners, craftsmen and master-students are invited to participate in a challenging six-day residency at the coast. In this ‘splendid isolation’, we want to think together, take action and share knowledge within a group of approximately twenty people. This temporary community will develop ideas and actions, and also be challenged by other thinkers and doers to transmit and share their knowledge. This thematic ‘research residency’ is the ‘pilot’ in a long-term research project centered in a new location for international artist residencies at the Raversyde domain (Ostend), which will open in September 2016.
