Summary/Abstract: This article aims to question the relation between literature, space and its (potential) truth. Through the analysis of theory of fiction (Pavel, Doležel, Blanchot), its social, material effect, and especially through foucauldian perspective of literature as heterotopia, the article tries to conceptualise and to posit a place of literature in a wider social space. For this reason the main question is not how literary space is created, but instead where is the place of literature as heterotopia, and how Goran Vojnović’s novel Jugoslavija moja dežela is placed in social space. The importance of place of literature in a wider social sphere lies in its in-betweeness: it is at the same time a part of social reality and running from it – the other space (heterotopia). Therefore, the literary discourse should be understood as a material force that can create a potential space for the other (or other space), which in reality does not have its place or is marginalised, even suppressed. From this perspective we conclude that this is literature’s institutional role and its truth.
