„Creativity takes courage.”
In the current issue of our magazine, we present artists and creative individuals, who show us their artistic mission with determination and courage. The aim of the Artlocator magazine is knowledge dissemination and cultural mediation, it’s mission is to present the seemingly enclosed and isolated art scene both to the profession and the public with 21st-century tools. Helping as a compass in the jungle of contemporary visual culture both online and offline.
At the launch event of our overarching magazine, we wanted to show an exciting “snapshot” of the relevant actors of the Hungarian contemporary visual culture with our exclusive group exhibition. A young generation of artists is working on the exhibition entitled Time Overlay in diverse styles and with different mediums. The title selection was inspired by the popular Snapchat filter, referring to the exhibition’s snapshot aspect as well as the spread of digital culture. Their works are mostly connected by the reflection on the rapport of humans and their environment. In the Sunlight Studio of the Hungarian House of Photography (Mai Manó Ház), we could see the works of Sári Ember, Botond Keresztesi, Dominika Trapp, Mira Dalma Makai, Péter Puklus, Ádám Ulbert, Judit Lóczi Horváth, Barnabás Tóth and Rebeka Rácz.
The artists presented in the magazine, as well as the exhibition, are connected by their passionate calling for creation. The 5th edition of Artlocator starts with drafting the artistic career of Dóra Maurer, then among others you can read an interview with Botond Keresztesi about the start of his career as a painter, with Dominika Trapp about her artistic vision, with Anna Ádám about her performance art and with Judit Lóczi Horváth about the process of creating her works of art. In the course of preparing the latest issue, we had conversations with Dana Lixenberg and Hans Ulrich Obrist working in the international art scene. Gastronomy, fashion, object creation and self-expression also has a place in the current edition. You can get to know the story of the Khan restaurant, the vision of REBU Ceramics and the dream project of Angéla Góg.
One of our priority products, our freely downloadable application was born to supplement the offline and online spaces of Artlocator, which informs you about galleries, creative collectives, museums as well as the most significant visual art events in Budapest in an easily navigatable app. The Artlocator app offers up-to-date, practical information about the current program selection, familiarizes the reader with the artists working in the city, gives first-hand background information, and its continuously updating recommendations make it easier to choose from the bewildering variety.
