Scouts

Name: Felix N.

City: Berlin, Germany


Born in Bayreuth, Felix moved to Berlin in 2005 to study comparative literature and theatre at the free university of Berlin. While studying, he continued to work for various different newspapers and magazines; such as Bild am Sonntag, Hate, Taz and Vice Magazine in Hamburg and Berlin as he had done before. As well as working as a journalist, he was also the assistant director for the Richard Wagner Festpiele in Bayreuth in 2008. Afterwards he moved back to Berlin where he started working for Vice as Online Editor.


When he has any free time he enjoys reading newspapers and magazines, when it comes to literature, he usually chooses books by authors like Christian Kracht, Rainald Goetz and Louis Ferdinand-Celine. Despite the fact that he thinks, and learned while studying, that theatre is doomed, he enjoys the work of Frank Castorf and the recently deceased Christoph Schlingensief, whose works he now enjoys mainly on screen.  Due to being born in Bayreuth, he was introduced early on to classical music, which led to him listening to punk music.
