"As well as the obvious practice of surveillance itself, the authorities (East Germany’s secret police) express themselves graphically in the make-up of their copious filing system. Stoically repeated phrases emphasise the power in every form; the (unintentionally) cruder the aesthetic formulation, the more efficiently the subject’s impotence is translated."
