How did you experience the outbreak of the pandemic? How did you spend the lockdown? In this article, with a certain modesty, Bernini recounts that, net of concern for his elderly parents, he fared well: tanned and in good physical shape, isolated but not alone in that condition of serial isolation that, according to the media representation of the pandemic, seems to have uniformly involved all of Italy. But this is only an ironic autobiographical debut, from which the narrative proceeds-through comparisons with Foucault, Cavarero, Agamben, Preciado and others-to an analysis that makes the Covid-19 a reagent that allows us to better observe the biopolitical and bioeconomic devices of vulneration that in the present nurture and exploit social inequalities and hierarchies. Among the many possible lenses, the author privileges that of gender and sexuality, which allows the philosophical-political problem of subjectivity to come into sharp focus.

Abstract

How did you experience the outbreak of the pandemic? How did you spend the lockdown? In this article, with a certain modesty, Bernini recounts that, net of concern for his elderly parents, he fared well: tanned and in good physical shape, isolated but not alone in that condition of serial isolation that, according to the media representation of the pandemic, seems to have uniformly involved all of Italy. But this is only an ironic autobiographical debut, from which the narrative proceeds-through comparisons with Foucault, Cavarero, Agamben, Preciado and others-to an analysis that makes the Covid-19 a reagent that allows us to better observe the biopolitical and bioeconomic devices of vulneration that in the present nurture and exploit social inequalities and hierarchies. Among the many possible lenses, the author privileges that of gender and sexuality, which allows the philosophical-political problem of subjectivity to come into sharp focus.
