A True Punk Subverts the Man with Trust and Loyalty: Kornelius Werhahn-Mees, What's Underneath
A True Punk Subverts the Man with Trust and Loyalty: Kornelius Werhahn-Mees

Status in the form of a Goldman Sachs business card was not the life for heavily tatted Kornelius, who had enough of the banking world after just a year in finance. From the plethora of pornographic images being passed around to the worship of luxury cars and expensive champagne, the dreams of his coworkers were not his. Instead, he opened a shop in Berlin called Soul Objects, where banks and their paraphernalia (i.e. credit cards) are not accepted and his clients can leave with an item and pay him later. In the 4 years he has been open, no one has reneged on their promise. “You start with 100% trust. It's a matter of respect, it's a matter of saying hey, you are trustworthy. It's a good feeling. Our world works exactly the opposite.” Watch Kornelius’ full episode and melt a little over his perspective on fatherhood, marriage and camouflage clothing.
