What do you mean 'used as a tool for repression' ? that they repressed modernism or that they espoused it in order to repress other schools of thought? I was under the impression that they were rather anti-modern, and that it was a more neoclassicism that they promoted -( though this is mostly russia i'm thinking of- and could be wrong anyway). For instance, didn't corbusier submit an entry for the soveit palace that lost to something along the lines of a weddingcake w/lenin ontop?
Though at the same time i guesse you can't call soviet block housing neoclassical... sorry can't help you too much , but it is an interesting topic, best of luck. Though i do think a book came out on Mies in Berlin and the rather delicate position he was in at the time... if that'll help at all...
