Beautiful Dachau was on a city tourism poster that became the name for a video installation I did in 2006 that was the forerunner for the film I re-edited which became In Place of Death. One of the paradoxes of the medieval town of Dachau is that it is quite beautiful and was an artists’ colony before the war. Indeed, there was a Dachau school of landscape painting. This image then and now stands in sharp contrast with the concentration camp and its impact on place naming, urban inclusion and remapping of the city, including and importantly in relation to its physical connectedness with Munich.
