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.

SITTING WITH THE BODY for Bureau d'Espoir

25-07-2013 [• sitting with the body • exemplary practices • making images ]
In the context of Battery - a production by Bureau d'Espoir  - two performers (Elke Van Campenhout and Veridiana Zurita) will spend three weeks (11 December 2013 - 3 January 2014) inside a 1.40m x 1.40m box. They define the poor but still supportable conditions, under which they want to live. We want to develop a sort of fitness-programme that helps them to keep themselves ‘in shape’ during their period in the box during which they automatically move much less than usual.

This fitness-programme will be based on the sitting with the body research practice which stems from the various retreats held until now.
