100 THINGS NOT WORTH REPEATING
100 THINGS NOT WORTH REPEATING: ON REPETITION
AGAIN: ON REPETITION

A series of projects that examine the value and effectiveness of repetition in general and repetition as a model for progression in particular.

100 THINGS NOT WORTH REPEATING, a public survey on the futility of assuming repetition as a model for progression, was initiated in 2007. Operating through online survey form, off-line presentations and events, its specific aim was to collect-to-share examples of when repetition proves futile. More than 400 people responded to the survey. Simultaneously, conversations regarding repetition in general, and the usefulness of assuming repetition as a method for progression, in particular, began to take place.

The book, 100 THINGS NOT WORTH REPEATION: ON REPETITION, funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, is the result of the survey and these subsequent discussions. Published by LemonMelon in 2011, it presents 100 selected responses to the survey contextualised by essays, texts and artworks 'on repetition' by David Berridge, Marina Gržinić, Rupert Hartley, Juliet Haysom, Roni Horn, Barbara Johnstone, Joan Jonas, James Morris, Jonathan Rée, Fred Scharmen, Mike Solomon, Sue Tompkins, Jill Townsley and Lucy Wilson.

To further extend the book, the subsequent AGAIN: ON REPETITION — an informal symposium on repetition in practice [PDF of Programme] presented talks and readings by David Berridge, John Hall, Rupert Hartley, Deborah Harty, Eirini Kartsaki, Jill Townsley and Alana Jelinek as well as a knitting performance by Dagmar Radmacher and screening of works by Hyun Jin Cho and Marianne Holm Hansen. The symposium may be repeated.

Join the mailing list to be kept informed of the publication and related events, including opportunities for presenting texts or works, on repetition.
