Alfredo Barsuglia is a young artist born 1980 in Graz and now living and working in Vienna and New York. He studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and also at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. In addition to his training in painting and graphics, he studied psychology, philosophy, arts, and communication from 1999 – 2004.

Barsuglia has been awarded several national and international awards and scholarships for his outstanding, creative work.

During Washington DC Architecture Week, the Austrian Embassy is going to exhibit Alfredo Barsuglia’s creation for the Embassy’s atrium, the Mobile Retreat Space. The Project will feature three cubes on wheels that represent various sections of an apartment - a living room, bathroom and bedroom. The visitors will be able to see into the cubes through windows. The cubes are fully furnished with pieces of furniture that have been designed and made by Alfredo Barsuglia himself.

Mobile Retreat Space is meant to be a moveable room for recreation, beauty and peace of mind. At the same time it addresses privacy and public exposure, intimacy and voyeurism, recreation of the body, fine architectural art, mobility and immobility. The cubes will stand by themselves in the far corners of the Atrium at the Austrian Embassy, but the visitors will also be able to see how the construction will look when the cubes are arranged.

Following the exhibition openjoyce-jump-yellowing, Brazilian/Austrian DJane Joyce Muniz will get us in the mood with her house & Latin-American mixes. Joyce Muniz is a Vienna-based DJane, vocalist and producer with Brazilian roots. Equipped with musical impressions of her home country Brazil, Muniz revolutionized the European club scene with new mixes including original Afro-, Jamaican, Caribbean or Brazilian sounds mixed up with electronic beats & massive bass.
