THE UTOPIAN SPACE OF THE KUNSTKAMMER
MetadataShow full item record
The current paper aims to compare the cabinet of curiosities as a space with the utopian space as it is examined by Foucault. The Кunstkammer is interpreted as a text, a compendium of the Universe that recounts the totality of the world. The paper draws connections between the collections, the Renaissance utopia and science fiction based on the way they examine the collecting and organising of the knowledge about nature and its anomalies, and the way the subject of creating new alternative worlds is present in them.
