Publisher Note

A book of perforated coupons with images and texts.

The One Who is Defined resembles a book of perforated coupons: each page is divided in two and on each half the same three-digit number is displayed. On each right-hand page, stereotypes are played with by juxtaposing phrases such as ‘The ones that study’ with ‘Some students’, or ‘The one who is retired’ with ‘Some pensioner’. On each left-hand page there are two identical images: the first pair of images show dots on a map, the last pair show an elderly woman feeding birds. A large drawing based on ‘The one who looks’ accompanies the book.
