McGuggenisation? National identity and globalisation in the Basque country.
POLITICAL GEOGRAPHY 19 (4): 473-494
ABSTRACT: This paper examines recent debates about the globalisation of cities and regions through a discussion of the recent opening of a Guggenheim Foundation art gallery in Bilbao. Through an analysis of the political context surrounding the project, I aim to explore the role of cities as crucibles for the negotiation of globalisation, and in particular how this relates to national identity.
