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 OTΗOE - 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.

OTΗOE - 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. OTΗOE.

Sitting With The Body - try-out

05-12-2015 [• sitting with the body • workshops etc. • Making Space/S ]
TRY-OUT 5 - 7 Dec 2014 / Ensorgallery Ostend

Retreat in public space TRY-OUT
During two days we retreate into the James Ensorgallery in the centre of Ostend. We practice everyday activities following the time-structure we developped during the recent months: sitting, lying down, walking, standing, making, seeing, dancing and speaking. The fixed timetable and the focus on one action at a time create the conditions for bodily introspection. Everybody is invited to observe the actions or enter the space and join the practice.
