100 THINGS NOT WORTH REPEATING:ON REPETITION is part of a series of projects by Marianne Holm Hansen that examine repetition in general, and the usefulness of assuming repetition as a model for progression, in particular.

In 2007, and in response to a situation where repetition of the same task was beginning to seem pointless, she initiated the project '100 things not worth repeating': an online public survey with the specific aim of collecting-to-share examples of when repetition proves futile. 434 people responded to the call. As survey responses were received, conversations regarding repetition in general, and the usefulness of assuming repetition as a method for progression, in particular, took place.

100 THINGS NOT WORTH REPEATING:ON REPETITION is the result of the survey and subsequent discussions. 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.
