Heterotopia does effect an overlay of diverse spaces and times, yet ultimately it opens only that space which lies between the one and the other: Even newer formats such as computer games, virtual map services and the obligatory TV series currently featuring in academic discourse are rubricated and analysed heterotopie representation forms.
