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.
Trois Points Residency / Residentie
We entered the residency knowing what materials we wanted to use, but not necessarily the purpose of them. There was no prior concept. The concept came into being through walking in the streets of Brussels. We collected artefacts, gave a new space to lost objects. There was an unrevealing of the mystery that is Brussels, whilst we were figuring out the mystery of working and living together. We researched the interconnectedness of everything, looking for evidence when there was none, in order to create autonomous aesthetic art forms. Only through the experience the work could fall into place.
We gingen de residentie in, wetende welke materialen we wilden gebruiken, maar niet per se
wat het doel ervan was. Er was geen voorafgaand concept. Het concept is ontstaan door in de
straten van Brussel te wandelen. We verzamelden artefacten, gaven een nieuwe ruimte aan
verloren voorwerpen. Er was een onthulling van het mysterie dat Brussel is, terwijl we het
mysterie van samenwerken en samenleven aan het uitzoeken waren. We onderzochten de
onderlinge verbondenheid van alles, zochten naar bewijzen wanneer die er niet waren, zo
kwamen we tot autonome esthetische kunstvormen. Alleen door de ervaring kon het werk op
zijn plaats vallen.
