'Nicht Anfang und nicht Ende' (engl.: 'Sketch of Europe') is an ongoing artistic engagement with the European continent that started during the so-called "refugee crisis" in 2015 with a series of portraits of people on their way to Western Europe (see also: 'Portraits from along the way'). It continues with an exploration of migration within Europe, the "wanderings" of the European people themselves: This hybrid project - consisting of photography, video and text - approaches the topic by way of the continent’s geographical extreme-points, which each form an episode of the project: Lapland (North), where the Sami, the indigenous people of Scandinavia, migrate through the tundra with their reindeer-herds; the life of a German drifter on Crete (South); a Roma-clan in Portugal (West) and work-related migration from Romania (East) westwards.
