Jean Peters was born in 1984. He studied political science and is a clown by training. Working as a performance artist, he founded the Peng collective for civil disobedience and subversion, which combines performance art and media manipulation with classical campaigning and investigative research. With Peng he infiltrated the press work departments of companies such as Shell, Google and Vattenfall. He has publicly called for pan-European refugee aid and founded an opt-out programme for secret service personnel. All of this because if the Fascists should rise to power, he wants to be able to brag about having done everything possible. Therefore he also started working for the Neo Magazine Royale with Jan Böhmermann.
