By analyzing the exhibitions of The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, the author addresses problems of metropolis, the philosophy of locality, and the arts. Metropolis is topographical, physical and communicative, as well as cultural. Behind the cultural valence there is, however, still something more—a metaphysical community. Local orientation of a human brings about the common creation of the space, which involves not only pride in one’s identity, but also a sense of the infinite, the impossible, the incomprehensible, and the strange.

Keywords: Locality, Metropolis, Anthropology
