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.

A shop window constitutes a bridge between the outside and the inside, the street and the shop, potential buyers and producers, sellers. It alters the relationship between artist and public space. It reverses the logic of much of today's 'community art' or 'local art', as it is not the artist who is scanning a specific neighborhood for things to do or deal with - rather it is the local community that can check the field of activity of a group of artists.
The shop window counters the logic of the private art studio or atelier. The artists and their practices are exposed to much more than just the gaze of a spectator. The shop door is always open and entry is free.
