Born in 1945 in Meissen/Sachsen, Germany (my pregnant mum was evacuated to Meissen due to heavy bombing of Berlin and the progress of the war front towards Berlin in winter 1944/1945).
I returned to Berlin in 1953, grew up in Berlin and live here since then.

1964 - 1966 Singer and rhythm guitarist with Berlin based beat band (see end of page)

1964 - 1971 Study of classics, history and geography at Free University Berlin

1974 - 2007 Working as grammar school teacher (doing a lot of film, photo and writing work if time left)

My art work is a river fed by multiple wells.
This river can partly be streamed to you through this website:

since 1978 songs and compositions (boKens), series of novels, short stories, non-fiction and photo books (Reinhard Bock and Ken Bos)

since 1981 video films and clips
