Salon Radical is a small art center for masters of the arts, young and old. It Seeks to bring together experiment and traditions, is transcultural and cherishes research.
Artistic leaders and researchers are Paul Vandenbroeck and Pé Vermeersch.
Salon Radical LOCATED IN KORTRIJK AND is the WORKING SPACE of RADICAL HEARTS VZW ( which is an international performing art cie )
Central stands the research in Weaving Art from the Magrheb by prof.em. Paul Vandenbroeck and the research into somatic practices, contemporary dance and performing art by philosopher dancer Pé Vermeersch . The wonderful collection we have gathered and researched throughout the years is often exposed together with contemporary art work , concerts and danceperformances. It is a truly transcultural house in which resonance is a main idea, between non western and western art forms, between tradtion and experiment. it is a place where intuition is of source of research and where the deep knowledge of the body is the treasure for surprising creations. The expositions we have made can be labelled as truly experiential. We created places with Art in which people love to ‘ stay ‘for some time and in which many different things can be discovered.

Besides his complex and sensibile work , we also organise performances and concerts, lectures, debates , somatic and danceworkshop an poetry performances ( f.e. DORST 2023)
