The The is a list in the form of a passport-sized booklet, a series of two-word combinations in which the first word (which is a variable) is followed by the word ‘the’. The words on the pages unfold as a sequence of statements whereby the object always remains ‘the’. These alternating texts have a self-reflexive mantra: for the, eat the, shit the, cut the, cure the, reject the, elect the, fight the, end the. The booklet is a response to the social and political conditions in the initial years of the pandemic.
