For Adventurers
A bisserl weiter... geht's immer

For adventurers Three months spent between morbid charm, arrogance and warmth: Sebastian Lörscher illustrates the Austrian attitude to life in ‘A bisserl weiter… geht's immer!‘ (A bit further... can always be done!)

    About 60 percent of Austria is mountainous, they make up two thirds of the Eastern Alps. Thanks to its high share of the high alpine mountains, Austria is also called the Alpine Republic. Almost 700 mountains over 3,000 meters! The highest is the 3,798 meter high Großglockner in the Hohe Tauern National Park.

    In Austria, there are well over 9,000 farms that are run by families. Many of them invite you to a vacation on a country holiday. Up to two and a half million visitors come every year. At winegrowers' or riding stables, in the alpine hut or log cabin, for hiking, cycling or wellness.

    Fairground for many, place of nostalgic dreams for some, green oasis for almost everyone: the Vienna Prater in the 2nd district is in season from March to October. The Ferris wheel, Vienna's world-famous landmark and some other attractions are open all year round.

Jens Wiesner on "A bisserl weiter... geht's immer"

In other words, we should see it as pure luck that Sebastian Lörscher has not succumbed to the temptation of improving the sketches he did during his three-month journey ‘through Wild Austria’."

"The Salty River"

On the very first pages, Jan Bauer makes it clear that his focus in “The Salty River" is solitude, peace and quiet, the inner self. This is an ego trip to help him cope with the loss of his mother and the end of a 16-year relationship. The salty river is a dry riverbed which Jan Bauer, starting in Alice Springs, follows for 15 days and nights – 233 kilometres along the Larapinta Trail.

"Was kostet ein Yak"

In search of inspiration for his thesis, Philip Cassirer travelled through Nepal, India and Bangladesh. He processed his experiences in the graphic novel, ‘How Much For A Yak?’ A conversation about the process of drawing in foreign worlds.
