Das 2 Minuten Interview
Matthias Ruff describes himself as an initiator and catalyst for transformation projects. Let’s translate: Matthias is cool and does fantastic things. His latest coup being the Forever Now Festival, which is all about self-perception, self-fulfillment, mindfulness and fitness and will take place for the first time this autumn at Neue Heimat in Berlin. The best yoga teachers, mentors and media will be gathering. Forever in the moment, forever now. Find out here about what else he does when he’s not smuggling revolutionaries from Egypt or cooking children’s meals. And, of course, it goes without saying that we also asked him about the meaning of life. ;)
Name: Matthias Ruff
|Who or what inspires you?
Good art. I last came across some during the Gallery Weekend at the Ngorongoro exhibition in Berlin-Weißensee.
When was the last time you did a good deed for someone and what was it?
And when was the last time you did something good for yourself?
Tell us your favourite magical place!
What is the meaning of life?
If you could change the world over night, where would you start?
What is your generation’s greatest problem?
|Which book, film and record should everyone have read, seen and listened to?
The underground techno record „The Rings of Saturn“ by X-102 has stuck with me for many years. Gilles Deleuz’ book „Negotiations“ has had a lasting effect on me. It is extremely rich in content — it’s practically the complete twentieth century squeezed into one book. The film „Pride“ has recently touched me. It is also a very funny film about transformation.
