The works of contemporary artists commanded astronomical prices between 2002 and 2008. Some art works cost as much as a Boeing. The real players in the art boom weren't the investors or even the artists themselves, but the gallery owners and art dealers. They created 'their' artists and decided who would get to buy their work. Super Art Market features the gallery owners Leo König from New York, Lorenz Helbling from Shanghai, Judy Lybke from Berlin, Lora Bartlett from London and Michai Pop from Cluj, Romania. They discuss how they run their business and make millions. This is a film about art in a consumerist society.
