Living spaces in Central and Eastern Europe

The exhibition of posters shows vividly how residential districts in Leipzig, Budapest, Sofia, St. Petersburg and Vilnius have changed due to the numerous transformations since 1990 and currently continue to undergo such changes.

Who is living behind the glossy facades of the inner cities? Why are buildings made of prefabricated slabs still in favour even now? What draws people to move out to the outlying areas of cities? – the exhibition examines stereotypes, scrutinising answers provided by science, and letting the residents themselves have their say.  In this way the observer gains surprising insights into the various worlds of everyday life in the cities of central and eastern Europe.

The poster show emerged from a comparative study across national boundaries, on changes in the social area in selected city regions. International research teams led by the IfL pursued the questions of which areas of common ground and which differences there are in selected residential districts in Budapest, Sofia, St. Petersburg, Vilnius und Leipzig.

Up to now the exhibition, with texts in German, English, Hungarian, Russian and Bulgarian, has been on show in Vilnius, Pécs, Budapest, Leipzig, and Manchester.
