Margin notes

     The essay is an attempt to consider the relation between center and margins. The author refers to the strategy of re-treating proposed by Tadeusz Sławek and to the gesture of closing eyes. Raised by Wolfgang Welsch concept of a "culture of the blind spot" is also very important - it shows how processes of centralization and marginalization works. The author refers to the ideas of Marquis de Sade, Giorgio Agamben, Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari, and Karen Barad in order to analyse two characters who become conceptual personas - the homeless and the refugee. According to them, it becomes clear, that the relation between center and margins is an apparatus. The author points out, that such a relation doesn't really exist, and suggests that we rather should reconsider the world in categories of community and intra-actions.

     Keywords: relation between center and margins, the homeless and the refugee, community.
