The Hungarian Institutional Network
Shown in the “BarabásiLab: Hidden Patterns” exhibit in the Ludwig Museum in Budapest, The Hungarian Institutional Network offers a data-driven perspective of the Hungarian art scene. In the map, two institutions—a museum or a gallery—are connected if an artist whose work was exhibited at the museum is also exhibited at the gallery. The map captures the largely invisible web of trust and influence between institutions and indicates how institutional prestige and hidden connections determine access to opportunities for artists. ©BarabásiLab (Contributors: A.-L.
