Led by Australian jewellery designer Su san Cohn and performing artist David Pledger, ‘meaninglessness’ is an interdisciplinary performance talk in response to the 2016 Danish Jewellery Legislation, which required that all jewellery and valuables belonging to refugees considered to be meaningless would be confiscated to help pay for their living costs.

The performance first took place at the Bækkelund International Residency Center for Artists in Denmark in 2017, with a further performance at the Design Museum in Copenhagen in 2018.
