The presented text is an attempt at an anthropological approach to the image of Venice presented in 'Perversion' by the outstanding Ukrainian author Yuri Andrukhovych. In this sophisticated literary joke, the author conducted an ironic and refined deconstruction of the stereotypical likeness of Venice, recorded in numerous literary texts. He reverts the signs and shows the second, darker side of the over-aestheticised and melodramatic portrayal of the town. As always, Venice proved to be a magnifying glass of European civilisation, but in the case of Andrukhovych it is a crooked mirror of the contemporary 'post-carnival nonsense of the world', as in the title of one of the papers read at a seminar of pseudo-intellectuals described in the novel.
