Five countries. Seven cities."Drifting East - A journeyman’s travelogue" is the documentation of a journey 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 came to various collaborations with artists and cultural workers in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Bulgaria and Romania. Pursuant to the tradition of the "Journeyman", I received accommodation, a job and an authentic insight into the working and living conditions of young independent art institutions, artists and cultural workers in Southeast Europe.
