The Lost Cent

Graphic novel with a cent and a hole about the least wanted money. Everything of value is defenseless. But what if a defenseless being is worthless? Like a cent. With less face value then its production cost, it could be the perfect object to raise questions about value. A valueless being; number 1, but a loser. It becomes problematic and unwanted. A homeless coin. A void that is not missed.

Short story by Charles Baudelaire, 'The Counterfeited Coin' and a conversation about the cent by Serge Onnen and Olav Velthuis
