Vincenz Kokot, born 1980, grew up in East Germany and moved to Berlin in the late 1990s. He studied Cultural Studies, Aesthetics and Social Anthropology. Moreover, he works as a musician, singer and author and organises cultural events such as concerts, screenings and readings. In 2012 he took up yoga and deepened his practice over the years. His interest in bringing together political and societal topics with the field of somatics led him to co-develop the “reflect your practice” series with Diana Thielen. Being white and able, being read as male and coming from a background of education, Vincenz tries to remain aware of the privileges of this position while attempting to contribute to social and political changes.
