Real places, structured and defined, yet absolutely different from all other social spaces: these are Heterotopias, as conceived by Michel Foucault. Worlds within worlds, mirroring and yet upsetting what is outside. They are disturbing, intense, incompatible, contradictory or transforming.

We used to think of them as places such as prisons, gardens, cemeteries, museums, asylums, cinemas, ships. What happened these past months catapulted all of us in a massive, universal heterotopia.
