Moscow Art Scene in the 1950–1960s. The Birth of Underground Art.

Manuscript. M., 2016.

The subject of this work is the changes in the artistic life and art of the USSR during the “thaw”. Special attention is paid to the socio-historical aspects of the birth of the phenomenon of unofficial art, which is largely a consequence of the changed vectors of the ideological and social policies of the Soviet state. At the same time, the focus is on conservative phenomena that continued the line of development of Soviet art of the 1930s-50s. In the field of art, the focus is on painting, graphics, arts and crafts.

The actuality of the work consists in a detailed study of the processes occurring on several levels of the Soviet artistic hierarchy, in comparison with previous historical periods, in particular, with the pre-revolutionary era of the flowering of avant-garde art and with the art of the Socialist Realism (1930s-50s).
