ABOUT THIS SITE >>> This site is a blog as well as an archive. It gives visibility to the actual working of radical_hope, to the research project Distraction As Discipline (2016 - 2019) and the process of OTÇOE - works for passers-by, a working trajectory (2013 and 2014).

Distraction As Discipline is an investigation into enactivist principles in art and education (guided by Heike Langsdorf & Anna Luyten / research at KASK School of Arts Ghent). 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 personal, 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.

In times where the demand for creative collaborations between art and economy
is high up on the political agenda, InCompany puts the case to the test.

InCompany founded a club for workers of any background, to discuss their
relation to work beyond the companies’ productive boundaries:
a challenging chill-out place to contemplate on labour, social construction,
personal beliefs and the broader economy we are all operating in.

Inspired by the designs and ideas of Alexander Rodchenko’s Workers' Club,
exhibited in Paris in 1925, InCompany is taken them further into our contemporary reality.
The Workers' Club invites 'comrades' to take part in an examination of the complex,
sometimes harsh, sometimes confusing, often intriguing working conditions
we are facing in the hyper connective age.

An investigation into the distance between the work we do and the values we desire to create.

During the club evenings people can participate in three different practices designed by InCompany.
These practices enable us to consider our personal working conditions and relations through multiple perspectives.
They raise questions of how our micro experiences as workers - whether employed or not -
relate with the macro events, our society is participating in.
