Editor of ZEIT online in the Magazine Department
Wenke Husmann studied theoretical physics as well as German and Romance languages and literature many years ago, did a traineeship at the Süddeutsche Zeitung and has been an editor of ZEIT online in Hamburg since 2000. Before she recently switched to the magazine department to write more about social and psychological topics, she was the culture editor of ZEIT online for many years. There, after supplementary studies at the French film school La fémis, she became intensively involved with film. An exciting subject, she finds, because documentary storytelling, in particular, must find new - and artful - answers to the pressing questions of truthfulness, authenticity and staging.
