The article is devoted to different forms of transgression and its characteristics on heterotopic spaces of frontier. This term is very popular and it can be found in the works of M. Blanchot, Derrida, G. Bataille, P. Klossowski, M. Foucault, etc. However, these authors often give it a connotation associated with the issues of religion and sexuality. According to the authors of this article, this phenomenon is not limited to these aspects of human life, and what’s more, transgression is an integral part of being in the heterotopic spaces and, in particular, on the frontier.
