Martin Schmidl: Postwar Exhibition Design. Displaying Dachau, Kunstwissenschaftliche Reihe, Bd. 42, Hrsg. Christian Posthofen, Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2010
In this book Martin Schmidl writes about the history of exhibition design from 1945 to the present day. The specific subject of his investigation, the exhibition of Nazi atrocities in the Dachau concentration camp, near Munich, mirrors the development of international exhibition design over the last 60 years. From this first exhibition in Dachau, which was organised in a makeshift manner by US soldiers and former concentration camp prisoners directly after its liberation, to today's historical museums, Schmidl presents the fundamental problem with memorials: the growing distance between a narrative history and professional visualisation.
