Abstract:According to Foucault a heterotopia could be described as an overlapping of several imaginary places (if not a real confusion between distinct spatial models) referring to a real place or at least to a spatial entity accepted as real. Consequently we can conceive heterotopias as simultaneously opened and closed. As represented in Mircea Eliade’s prose writing, the between the wars Bucharest emerges as a case in point which displays some of the main aspects of a heterotopical space. In the same way as a foucaldian “espace autre”, Eliade’s urban space involves a particular interpretation of time converting the conventional chronology into a paradigmatical anachrony. On the other hand, as a typical heterotopia, the Bucharest of Eliade is a (con) fusion of eclectic real and also imaginary layers.
