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.

ecocheques - we prefer not to!

05-12-2015 [• economy • making images • workshops etc. ]









As a reaction on the reminder by podiumkunsten (social fond for stage-art), motivating artists to spend their ecocheques by the end of November 2015, we are joining the transformation process "pass eco pass", initiated by Various Artists.

Collective Collaging Session, PASS-ECO-PASS:
Bains Connective on Saturday 5th of December, from 15h - 18h!

15h: arrival, coffee and introduction of the matter
15:30 - 17:30: eco pass processing
17:30: drinks at Brasserie des Alliés

Don't forget your eco-pass in case you (still) got some!
Various artists is transforming "Eco Pass" into an artistic piece by Christl, and Martn Coppens. The piece has the same dimensions as the cheque, and consists of a collage cutting up four, and a half "Eco Pass".

"Since 2012, artists working under a temporary contract in the performance arts (PC304) are entitled to receive "Eco Pass".  This economic advantage - no taxes are payed for the cheques - serves to increase purchasing power of employed artists.

We disagree with this measure of superficial economical aid for artists, when overall budgets for culture keep shrinking, and their legal situation remain uncertain.

"Eco Pass" in this context are only palliatively drawing away the attention from a precarious reality of contemporary artists in our society."

[Various Artists 2013]

You too can become the owner of a "Pass Eco Pass" by Christl, and Martn Coppens by sending four, and a half Eco Pass to: Various Artists p/a Nadine rue du Berger 30, 1050 Brussels.
