Političnost fikcije kroz destabilizaciju jezika / Politicality of Fiction through Destabilization of Language
Keywords:fiction, language, system of representation, meaning, signifier, signified, political
Continuous dialogues between readers and fiction works (art) create new and unstable understandings and perceptions of reality. Nevertheless, those cognitions are always determined by language/discourse, encoded by preexisting fixed meanings and our knowledge. This paper theorizes a possibility of fiction – which always reflects, reproduces and refers to provisional reality perceptions – to destabilize language/discourse and subsequently question and challenge the stability of reality sustained by it.
