"The lure of the local is the pull of place that operates on each of us, exposing our politics and our spiritual legacies. It is the geographical component of the psychological need to belong somewhere, one antidote to a prevailing alienation."
Lucy Lippard, 1997 in The Lure of the Local: senses of place in a multicentered society
