John Bock (was born in 1965 in Schenefeld, Germany) is a german artist currently living and working in Berlin. He is a sculptor, filmmaker, action artist, author and maker of drawings, best known for his theatrical cosmos of genre-bending performances and installations. His works often converge in sprawling experimental setups that confound the senses. The Berlin-based artist explores the dark sides of the psyche and radically flaunts the breakdown of social and psychological taboos.
