Drifting East – A journeyman’s travelogue is the documentation of a travel through Southeast Europe. Inspired by an old ongoing craftsman tradition, the Journeyman Years, I offered my expertise as a graphic designer outside of my usual environment. In the period from 16 September to 20 December 2018, it produced various collaborations with artists and cultural workers in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Bulgaria and Romania. In keeping with the tradition, I received accommodation and an authentic insight into the working and living conditions of independent art institutions, artists and cultural workers in Southeast Europe. In addition to the graphic works, a broad documentation of the places, people and their work was created. The book documents in chronological order the journey from each country with location descriptions, interviews, field reports and thus opens up a view of current cultural events in the Balkan region.
Furthermore the Website places the focus on the graphical output created during this time.Published: 14.05.2020
