for the four-channel video installation Dachau 1974, 1974

pictographic video score: 24 x 18″

      The installation Dachau 1974 focuses on the former concentration camp as a tourist site, as she found it in 1974. Today this piece is highly regarded in the canon of video art for its powerful framing of place and time, in addition to the installation’s technical and structural rigor. Premiered at The Kitchen in 1975, Dachau 1974 is one of the first multiple-channel video art works.
