The work Maßnahme 26A/B was developed in a temporarily used studio in a former restricted area of the German Democratic Republic in Berlin and directly refers to the area and it’s buildings used by the GDR State Security Services and the Ministry of State Security whose responsibilities included manufacturing spying techniques as bugging systems and hidden cameras. The light work Maßnahme 26A/B signalizes a certain morse code and thereby visualizes two of these spying techniques - operation 26A stands for telephone bugging, 26B for bugging rooms.
