Illustrations from the catalogue of the Baumeister der Revolution (master builders of the revolution) exhibit provide the raw material. While in the exhibit it was primarily the photographs of Richard Pare, who has documented the present condition of the Russian avant garde architecture of the 1920s and 1930s, that were placed in a context together with the works of constructivist architecture, during her visit to the exhibit, Sinta Werner was particularly inspired by the small architecture photos from the archive of the Schusev State Museum of Architecture in Moscow. The architecture is monumental and characterised by constructivism. The structures are stripped of their monumentality and severity by processing in the collage. They seem light and playful, not as if someone were playing a trick, but instead they appear lively, as if they weren't taking themselves so seriously. Sometimes a tire is woven into the facade, then stripes unfurl like Policeman's Helmet. Für die Serie 'Die Operation der Verschiebung' greift sie Abbildungen aus dem Katalog »Baumeister der Revolution« der gleichnamigen Ausstellung im Martin-Gropius-Bau auf: Daraus entnimmt Werner Fotografien russischer Avantgarde-Architektur der frühen Sowjetjahre und bearbeitet sie mit dem Skalpell, bis sie die haptische Qualität eines Reliefs erhalten. Dabei folgt die Künstlerin der subtilen Logik jener Gebäude, wenn sie Pilaster vom Papier abhebt oder Brüstungen zu spielerischen Kräuseln verdreht.
