The Gotuppictures website was launched in 2016 with the aim of providing an easy access to Hungarian culture, with a focus on fine arts and contemporary art life in Budapest to visitors and expatriates in the city, by Budapest maps showing the exhibition spaces, museums, galleries, showrooms and other art venues of Hungary’s capital city, and creating a database of those venues. The website was created based on the Hungarian site Kiállítótérkép kiallitoterkep.hu: its contents are the English version of the Hungarian website.
Gotuppictures and Kiállítótérkép are websites developed in Hungary and based on their creators’ original ideas. Logo design: Melinda Skriba (2016). Website design: netPR.hu (2016), Anya Művek – Eszter Mertl, anyamuvek.hu (since 2017).
The maps available at Gotuppictures and Kiállítótérkép are made by independent Hungarian designer Anna Linda Knoll (annalindaknoll.com). The technique used when creating the maps has been inspired by the following: • Hoechsmann, M. & R. Poyntz, S. (2012) Medialiteracies: A Critical Introduction. London, Wiley Blackwell. • Beke, L. (2014) Imagination/Idea: The Beginning of Hungarian Conceptual Art: The László Beke Collection, 1971. Budapest, tranzit.hu – ERSTE Stiftung – JRPRingier. • Architecture with the People, by the People, for the People: Yona Friedman (Coleccion Arte Arquitectura AA MUSAC). Barcelona, MUSAC–Actar (2011). • Megyik, J. (2012) The Space of the Image. Budapest, Ludwig Múzeum – Kortárs Művészeti Múzeum.
