La pandemie, un impossible «grand recit»?

Jean-Jacques Wunenburger


The World Pandemic: an Impossible Storytelling? 

Since 2020 the pandemic has been affecting the world population, bringing with it a proliferation of widely medialized images, symbols and myths. Has this collective catastrophe, which has upset the social and economic life of many countries, been accompanied by a coherent, stable, identifiable imaginary capable of producing meaning in events? Has the pandemic not been marked by the impossibility of a great narrative, by disturbing images, induced by contradictory injunctions and obsessive forms of anxious dystopias? Will covid19 not be contemporary with a perturbed, perverted, deficient imaginary (especially in France?)
