Abstract. The article deals with the problems of representation of the historical past in digital culture, identifies the reasons for the "historical turn" in the era of high technologies and transformations that occur with historical images and narratives in the process of digitalization. Special attention is paid to the escapist possibilities of (pseudo)historical narrative, as well as to the playful nature of representations of the historical past in popular culture. It is concluded that it is important to preserve the historical past in various forms of culture today.

Keyword. Digital culture, history, myth, representation, escapism, fiction, past, game, postmodernism, simulacrum.
