Summary/Abstract: The study seeks for contact points of Pelevin´s postmodernist poetics and post-colonial interand transstructuralism. It sums up selected works of German literary studies on postmodernist practices in Pelevin´s oeuvre, it points to intersections between postmodernist and post-colonial studies from Homi K. Bhahba´s perspektive and thus it proposes two ways of interpreting Pelevin´s texts. In the last part it analyses post-colonial features in the novel S.N.U.F.F. from 2011, including the post-colonial concept of space, hybridization of traditional cultural codes, language heteroglossia and method of mimicry.
