Double includes a group of artists, architects, critics, historians and theorists, discussing the effects, desires and implications in the act of doubling and replicating. Society has constantly regulated the act of copying. Almost as an instinctual impulse towards originality, the desire and need for constant innovation has been protected throughout history with public shame, bureaucratic forms or even trials. Investigating the issues of sameness and difference, this compilation of manifestos explores the possibilities embedded in the act of copying, opening a path for learning by copying, and ultimately copying better.
