Summary/Abstract: The concept of auto-communication has a relatively short history. The most common semiotic idea of auto-communication created in 1973 belongs to Juri Lotman. According to Lotman, auto-communication is the communication of a subject (culture or living being) with it/him/herself. Auto-communication has mnemonic and meaning generation functions. The concept under study is gradually analyzed and developed in the context of the semiotics of the artistic text. Auto-communication that has a meaning generation function is considered, firstly, as a mode of text processing; secondly, as an amplifying factor for the general possibility of a text to be interpreted and turned into the basis for the creation of new texts, hence, to survive in the culture.
