Re-: With the general sense of ‘back’ or ‘again’, occurring in a large number of words directly or indirectly adopted from Latin, or of later Romance origin, and on the model of these freely employed in English as a prefix of verbs, and of nouns or adjectives derived from these. […]
Oxford English Dictionary
In modern English, the prefix re- is used to coin verbs and nouns denoting a repetition. In older formations, re- can also indicate a movement back to a previous state, or carry an intensifying force. At first glance transparent and directional, re- in fact complicates the linear and teleological models commonly accepted as structuring the relations between past, present and future, opening onto many temporal paradoxes.
As the first presentation of the collaborative work undertaken as part of the ICI’s Core Project ERRANS, in Time, this workshop seeks erratic temporalities in which sequences are agitated, teleologies unsettled, and time unhinged. Taking various instantiations of re- as its points of departure, current ICI Fellows will present an errant glossary in order to provoke reactions, resonances and responses.
