Along with the capital and technology transfer, the business of a museum is no longer just limited to one city or district. The owners of a museum are able to expend it into a multinational museum business for oversea markets. Guggenheim museum as a multinational museum is encouraged by the Bilbao effect, and ready to use the so-called “image of city development” as a bargain condition for “monopoly rent”, and that will induce the competition among the cities.
This thesis is intended to analyze the Guggenheim effects and its process and meaning of “transnational interconnectedness”, and then try to criticize and introspect on the case of “Tai-chung city's efforts and struggles to get a Guggenheim museum”. By the time Tai-chung city brought up the Guggenheim issue at the end of 2001, it turned out to be a controversy topic since then. This “city event” interweaved the complicated local culture, political and profit fighting with central government, city government and city council. Through the analyzing of this complicated interrelation and compromising process of all the related parties, this thesis is also trying to expose different actions and views on the image about Guggenheim taken by each party.
Guggenheim in Taiwan became not only a cultural issue, but also a battlefield of ideology and profit. This thesis observed that when Tai-chung city lost its chance to win Guggenheim as “mark of distinction”, the city “urban governance” is already in a predicament.
