The title Eastern Block Stories features a dozen of articles and over 60 unique handpicked images about mass housing estates in former communist states. This book aims to address the blind spots to take a closer look at the major challenges for postsocialist housing estates today and imagine what could be their future.

Besides stories from Georgia, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Poland and Germany unique photographic material which covers cases from more than ten countries is included. The major take of this book is to unveil the diversity of the Eastern blocks alive and the richness of their urban context besides a stigmatizing and alienating gaze.
