Na uboczu. Powrót do oikologii
Languages of publication
"Return to oikology" is our imperative that tells us what we are obligated to do with home in times of homelessness, migration, and travelling. The domestic thinking can lead us to extension our thought of home and emplacement, entering the remoteness and openness. The idea of being off the beaten track brings our domestication and dwelling again. Serious thinking about home and locality shows anew the task that becomes our challenge. Oikology uncover a poverty of being attached to the nomadic thoughts. We recognize the house in a place off the beaten track - on the sidelines of the world, on the sidelines of discourses, on the sidelines of the official route of culture, on the sidelines promoted the mobility of people and things, but on the sidelines of propaganda of stability and familiarity. We are already so far removed to see the house again, but close enough not to lose the simplicity of home. Oikology leads us to the disquieting question: are you really convinced of that house so easily let you go into all the world?
