Cities and the Super-Rich
This chapter examines how the growth of wealth in the East has led to an increase of super-rich individuals and monarchies that are influencing the arts and cultural sector. In particular, it explores how the arts and cultural sector is implicated within the development of global cities in the East and the role that the super-rich play within this. It first analyses how super-rich monarchies in the Gulf are using high-profile cultural developments to develop their cities globally. Next, it explores how the private collecting activities of the super-rich have affected the development of freeports and private museums in global cities. Finally, it explores how the super-rich are utilising private museums to enhance their identities, in particular to demonstrate their power and wealth.
