Virusland is an imaginary chronicle documenting the development of a form of life subjected to virality and lockdown.
“Virusland” does not refer to a region of the globe but to a form of life. It reaches us by contagion. Geographical contagion, from one region to another, and metaphysical contagion, from fiction to reality. The anguish that dominates *Virusland* is not only due to the fear of sickness. It has to do with what Freud calls “Unheimlichkeit”: when reality mixes with fiction.
