The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in scientific journals: Asymmetries between the American art perspective and the European regional planning viewpoint

Beatriz Plaza () and Silke Haarich

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Bilbao has gained fame with the Guggenheim Museum, even in the Academic world. Google Scholar yields 2610 outcomes for “Bilbao Guggenheim” and the number of articles published in ISI-WoK listed-journals is 93 up until today. Surprisingly, however, almost 80% of these articles have been published by foreign authors, whereas many prestigious local authors have little or almost no scientific production in the ISI listed journals. This article analyses the connexions between nationality, language and publications, and offers an explanation for the disproportion between foreign and local knowledge, which causes mistaken scientific and public opinions about the “Guggenheim-Effect”.
