In his book “Lütten Klein. Leben in der ostdeutschen Transformationsgesellschaft” (Suhrkamp 2019), Steffen Mau looks at the development of the GDR and East Germany after the Peaceful Revolution using the Rostock prefabricated housing estate Lütten Klein as an example. The book is both a personal memoir and a sociological analysis. It shows how this special form of housing still shapes the way of life of the residents and what changes took place. During the event, Steffen Mau will read from the book and present some theses for discussion.

Steffen Mau is a professor of sociology at the Humboldt University in Berlin. He deals with questions of socio-structural change and social inequality.

The event will take place here via Zoom.
