Uqbar

Uqbar is the name of the fictional country at the center of “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius,” the opening story of Jorge Luis Borges’s Ficciones (1944). In its current iteration, this investigation takes the form of a dossier, consisting primarily of drawings and photographs, that simultaneously affirm and call into question the existence of this imaginary place.
