Sameness and repetition in contemporary media culture

Publikation: Bog/rapportMonografiForskningpeer review


This book scrutinizes repetition and sameness in a media cultural context, as an overarching category that constitutes a fusion of aesthetic and market strategies. It theorizes and historically grounds the idea of repetition in relation to media, not exclusively as a product of big data or late capitalism, but as something that has long roots in our artistic tradition. My intention is twofold: to interrogate the genuinely joyful aesthetic pleasures offered by new and old repetitive formats, but also to adopt a critical perspective that questions excess consumption habits and sameness-maximizing recommendation systems.
