Short summary
Every crisis is a moment both of the intensification of borders and of their potential breaking down. Borders have acquired centrality in the imaginary of the management of the pandemic. They are a constitutive part of the pandemic condition, endowed with a new symbolic and cognitive force. The massive interventions by states to shore up the economy may simply be the prelude to a more virulent phase, where a crisis of legitimacy and a crisis of social reproduction are interwoven.
