AØH Publication Horizon/ Time Jump, Alfredo Barsuglia 2019/2020// Exhibition Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt Oct 2020

The latest limited edition art book on Alfredo Barsuglia’s exhibition Horizon in the framework of Visiting Schlossberg Mountain Oct/ Nov 2019 written by Daniela Haberz, M.A. has been published. The book includes Barsuglia’s project Zeitsprung/ Time Jump, 2019-2040 for the Sculpture Garden on the River Mur curated and headed by Daniela Haberz, M.A. and will be inaugurated on 10th of September 2020 at 4.30 until 6.00 p.m. at the Grünanger Playground & Skateboard Park.

We would like to take the time to announce our latest co-operation with Hungary based Art Consultancy Lavor Collective: http://www.lavorcollective.com

The next exhibition opening in the framework of Visiting Schlossberg Mountain 2020 will open on Friday, 2nd  of October 2020 at 4.00 until 7.00 p.m. and presents the artists Tonino Gotarelli as master of mixed media painting approach in a co-operation with the Fondazione Gottarelli in Imola, Italy and currently active painters from Germany and Austria. The exhibition takes place in the framework of the exhibition series Visiting Schlossberg Mountain and is curated by Daniela Haberz  M.A. as well serving as recommendation for collection acquisition in my role as a Wealth Adviser for Art as Investment.

As Barbara Rosen established in a symposium on Donald Judd in a panel discussion titled Is Easle Painting Dead? with Larry Bannard, Larry Poons and Robert Rauschenberg on 10th of November 1966 the artists were asked for their perspective on being a painter and having finally chosen this medium as primary one in their career or not. Like stated a painter is simply not good enough for any other medium that’s why they are stuck with painting as a creative output sent a controversial message.

Spinning this controversial point of view  further, my curatorial choice of contemporary painters shows current practise in this medium with a today approach on the often considered rusty technique, mainly known by the general public as oil painting on canvas hanging in art history museums or showcasing well established artists in large survey retrospectives.

Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt further references an exhibition called Painting 2.0 shown at Tate Modern and provides a new and fresh perspective on a ‘dying?’ medium.

That’s left for the visitor to decide, whom we welcome back to the Bell Tower on Schlossberg Graz with the second exhibition in this year 2020. The art book on Alfredo Barsuglia will be presented to the public that day during the opening ceremony on 2nd of October 2020 starting from 4.00 p.m. until 7.00 p.m.

All my best and I am looking forward to engage in thorough discussion on painting,

Pressemitteilung:

Pressetext Horizont & Zeitsprung von Alfredo Barsuglia ‘Zu Gast am Schlossberg’

Press release:


The young Austrian artist Alfredo Barsuglia born in Graz, Austria with Italian roots, will present his exhibition in the Bell Tower on Schlossberg Mountain, Graz (AUT) in the exhibition series ‘Visiting Schlossberg Mountain’ 2019 starting from 11th October until 09th of November 2019.

The installation titled ‘Horizon’ will transform the local landmark Bell Tower Graz into a Sea side lieux which upon entering makes us feel being in a different remote surrounding.

From a sea side sun down through a level of maps and nautical equipment towards a star constellation, invented by the artist Alfredo Barsuglia himself, we discover the Bell Tower anew.

In the framework of Barsuglia’s exhibition the first installation of the Sculpture Garden at the river Mur will be realised on the banks of the river in Graz under the title ‘Time jump’, 2019-2040 which presents the artist’s invitation to revisit the site where a five year old tree will be planted this October 2019, in 2040 when he will be creating a little drawing in the birch of the tree. As we discussed with dry sense of humour: ‘If we and the tree will still be alive’. ‘Definitely planning on it’ we decided.

The closing reception on 09th November  will be followed by the presentation of Barsuglia’s installation Time Jump, 2019 – 2040 inaugurating the Sculpture Garden on the River Mur at 4.30 p.m. curated and Head of Project Daniela Haberz, M.A.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Bell Tower and at the inauguration of the Sculpture Garden on the River Mur for Barsuglia’s performance planting a tree referencing Joseph Beuys Dokumentation Project 7.000 Oaks.

We would like to thank the County of Styria, City of Graz Culture, Real Estate Department & the Tourism Board as well as the Mayor of the City of Graz.

All my best for a relaxing summer,

Daniela Haberz, M.A.
Curator & Head of projects
