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.

Residency: Irene Lehmann
Writing residency by Irene Lehmann, theatre and performance studies scholar, author and dramaturge, in the framework of a larger research project, titled „Resonating Knowledges“. In the residency she will explore questions that emerge in interdisciplinary research settings she has been a part of, such as ’through practices…’ (with Heike Langsdorf and others, KASK Gent) or ‚On the fragility of Sounds‘ (with Pia Palme and others, KUG Graz). The aim of the residency is to explore these questions and resonances between different research practices through a series of performative writing experiments.
