Wenzel chose cultural studies and aesthetics as his subjects at the Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany. Since that time he has been living as a freelance artist; in the beginning he performed with the song-and theatre-group “Karls Enkel”, from 1978 until 1999 he went on stage together with Steffen Mensching as the cabaret-clown-duo Wenzel & Mensching. In the years1988 and 1989 Wenzel spent respectively three months in Nicaragua, working there as a director. In 1982 his first volume of poems is published under the title “Lied vom wilden Mohn”. This is followed by the second volume, “Antrag auf Verlängerung des Monats August”, in 1987. His first record, „Stirb mit mir ein Stück“ is released in 1986; Wenzel was awarded the “Golden Amiga” for his debut-album. During that time he was involved in several stage-productions and musical projects.

In 1997 he firstly published the recordings of poems by Austrian writer Theodor Kramer on the CD “Lied am Rand”. Since 1999, the Sansibar Kulturmanagement has been in charge of the organisation and conception of his work. In 2001, “Schöner Lügen” is released.
