Even before it began its work on April 1st 1956, the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), Germany’s intelligence service, was inseparably linked to the site in Pullach near Munich. For decades, this Bavarian town has been synonymous with an important and controversial chapter of German post-war history which, even today, is marked by “opinions, clichés and prejudices”, according to the present chairman of the BND, Dr. August Hanning. The decision reached by the security cabinet chaired by Chancellor Gerhard Schröder on April 10th 2003, namely to relocate the headquarters of the intelligence service to Berlin, signifies a radical turning point in the way the intelligence agency sees itself. During the course of this relocation, Andreas Magdanz was offered the historic opportunity to take a closer look at this history-steeped area in Pullach, which will probably be abandoned in 2011 following the move, within the context of an artistic photographic project and without any limitations of access.

Three years of reconstruction of the new Suermondt Ludwig Museum are reflected in the images and captions of the photo documentation by the museum's and the contractor's staff. Thus, the decision to appoint an artist to acquaint himself with the building and its times was easily taken. Andreas Magdanz trailed the creation of the museum since the completion of the unfinished building with persistence. This topic is under construction.
