The Commentators

 

WOLF GUNTER THIEL

 

ART HISTORIAN / COMMENTATOR

 

Wolf-Günter Thiel is a leading German art historian art historian, aesthete, critic and commentator based in Berlin. He was an early collaborator of
Hornsleth’s, and therefore the main authority on Hornsleth’s work and ethos. His eloquence and analytical skills, coupled with his knack for lingual
inventiveness, make him one of the most engaging interviewees and conversationists on art and culture.
His two-day interview for Hornsleth: Product of Love is characterised by uncommon pathos for Hornsleth the artist, his thinking and work.
Once an editor of Flash Art magazine and essayist for numerous critical journals,
Gunter currently co-publishes Fair Magazine, a highly refined journal for art and aesthetics, based in Berlin.
He has written extensively on Hornsleth’s work over the years.

DR, GLENN MUSCHERT

SOCIOLOGIST / COMMENTATOR

Glenn Muschert is Associate Professor of Sociology at Miami University.
He received his B.S. in International Area Studies from Drexel University in 1992 and Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2002.
After serving a one-year appointment on the Law and Society Faculty at Purdue University, in 2003 he joined Miami University’s faculty as an Assistant
Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology and Gerontology. In 2009, Dr. Muschert was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor.
His areas of scholarly interest lie in the sociological study of crime and social problems, including the mass media framing of high profile crimes, school
shootings, missing persons, and social control through surveillance technologies.
By sheer coincidence, Hornsleth’s Langeland Schools Massacres project offers a compelling simulacrum of his findings.
