The purpose of this article is an attempt to outline the specifics of artistic mapping in contemporary literature through conceptualization to understand the "map" and territory "in the context of geopoietics studios. Philosophical and cultural works, which supplement the theoretical and methodological base of geopoetics, were chosen as the methodological basis for the research. Metaphor "Map is not a territory" (Alfred Korzybski) serves to explain the representation of the world, the description of reality. Artistic exxpictations of cartography are considered on the material of the works "Voroshilovgrad" by Sergey Zhadan, "Map and Territory" by Michel Welbeck, "Certain Judgments about Byzantium" by Velimir Churgus Kazimir. This article analyzes the problem of reality and literature interrelation and the problem of man and landscape relations. It is memory and place through the landscape that allow to connect local, ethnic and global aspects into a single whole. Cultural and civilization projections, map and territory designs are perceived in modern humanities as a manifestation of struggle and mutual overlay of "tree" and "root" cultures. The research of the transcultural communications in the artistic space, allows to define modern aesthetics as the universalistic functions. Local space and limited geo-cultural landscape inspires individual mythology of modern writers. In modern fiction we often observe incorporation of historical facts, fragments of pseudo-documents, description of real landscapes and maps of invented territories into the text.
