Enderlein studied in 1954-1958 in Friedrich's shimmer university in Jena classical archeology, art history and ancient history. Be most important academic teacher was Robert Heidenreich. In 1956 and 1957 he finished training periods in Islamischen Museum. On the basis of the knowledge acquired during the study Pehlevi and continuing investigations in coin cabinet ([[Bodemuseum]) he wrote his dissertation about the " coins with Pehlevi legends " from the coin collection Friedrich's shimmer university.
In 1959 he began as a scientific employee in Islamischen Museum where he dealt, among the rest, with sasanidischen seal steinen. In 1965 he passed a doctoral thesis about " portrait busts on seal stones. Investigation to the iconography of the sasanidischen art " one which led for political reasons only in 1995 to his doctorate in university of Leipzig.
From 1st August, 1965 Enderlein was a provisional leader Islamischen Of museum, became in 1971 acting manager and on the 1st September, 1978, in the end, manager of the museum. The long way of the internationally approved scientist who was not a member SED or one block party en can be likewise explained only by the political influencing control on the museum being. From 1992 he was an acting manager by the union educated Museums for Islamic art which he led from 1995 to 2001 as a manager.
In his long activity as a leader and manager Volkmar Enderlein not only substantially the acquisition and exhibit activity stamped, but took with the careful steering system of the activity of all employees also influence on the creation of the development of the museum. The reopening of the showrooms after Krieg, the installation Aleppo room see (1960) and Gebetsnische from Konya (1965) belong to the early highlights of his career which already reveal an important concern: the connection of academically sound work on the collection objects with the presentation understandable for a wide audience from islamischer art.
During the division of the collection Enderlein held the contact with the museum in Dahlem partly in conspiratorial way straight and provided u. a. together with colleagues for the fact that copies of the documentation located on the museum island reached in the west part of the city. The desegregation of the collections (1992) and the reorganisation substantially stamped by him of the constant exhibit (2001) underline the historical meaning of this activity.
A special main focus of his work was the employment with oriental carpet en. His numerous works in this area found the recognition of the international professional world. Before Kelim see and Turkman's carpets in Islamic en art history found bigger attention, dealt Enderlein with them and could lay with it also the foundation-stone for acquisitions of the museum in this direction.
The Islamic book art, the relations Europe see to East, Early-Islamic architecture as well as biographic researches to Wilhelm von Bode and Friedrich Sarre likewise belonged to important research and exhibit subjects Enderleins.
