The cinema and cemetery



'...are sites without a [...] fixed, univocal, geometric notion of geography. They inhabit multiple points in time and collapse multiple spaces into a single place.
'As "other spaces", they are permeable systems of opening and closing, a type of space that refers to all other spaces and, ultimately, to every space imaginable. Cinema and the cemetery, like the garden, are such heterotopias, for they are capable of juxtaposing in a single real place segments of diverse geographic worlds and temporal histories.'
