  • Also a philosophical concept theorized by Michel Foucault. It refers to real places which are "something like counter-­‐sites, a kind of effectively enacted utopia in which the real sites, all the other real sites that can be found within the culture, are simultaneously represented, contested, and inverted. Places of this kind are outside of all places, even though it may be possible to indicate their location in reality." (from his essay, "Of Other Places") Examples of heterotopias, from the same essay: cemeteries, ships, museums, libraries, brothels, and colonies.
