In the GDR, the specialist in German Studies, Frank Hörnigk committed himself to critical literature and the theatre scene. He tried to make this critical culture more public, and therefore faced official sanction. As a consequence, he could not be appointed a full-time professor for Contemporary German Literature at Humboldt-University in Berlin, before 1990. Hörnigk has also been a specialist for Georg Büchner and directed the complete edition of Arnold Zweig. Furthermore, he dedicated himself to the publication of the scattered works of playwright Heiner Müller. Frank Hörnigk retired in 2008, and passed away in 2016.
