It is indeed hard to stay logical during the pandemic. I have also been struggling with the reality of repeatedly losing family members, friends, colleagues, teachers and students over the last year and a half.
What thoughts might run through people’s minds in the coming decades when they enter a pandemic museum, exploring halls filled with rows of exhibits and artifacts?
This imagined museum describes human suffering and people’s unpreparedness in the grip of the pandemic. A contemporary painting entitled “El Amor en Tiempos de Pandemia” (love in the time of the pandemic) by a Spanish artist is on display, depicting a couple kissing while wearing masks. There is also a replica of an isolation ward with a virtual simulation that runs on a giant LED wall, so visitors can feel the loneliness and stillness patients and healthcare workers experienced.
