Aside from health care and education,‭ ‬housing was one of the main pillars of the revolution in Cuba.‭ ‬Due to the perpetual lack of living quarters,‭ ‬the‭ ‬“Microbrigadas‭”‬ were set up in‭ ‬1971.‭ ‬Until today these construction units continue to build their own multi-story apartment blocks as well as community buildings all over Cuba.‭ ‬Images of architecture,‭ ‬archival material,‭ ‬and interviews are combined into an experimental collage about this phenomenon of a revolutionary modernity.
