  • Sovetskaia Kul’tura, as it is known today, is the most important Soviet and Russian publication on culture from 1929 to the present, with reviews of major events in literature, theater, cinematography, and arts. For over 80 years Kul’tura has provided a unique perspective on ever changing attitudes toward arts and culture in Soviet and Russian societies.  Sovetskaia Ku'ltura went through several title changes.  In Rabochii i iskusstvo (1929-1930) artists had relative freedom to create works for the New Soviet man. During the Stalin years, Socialist Realism became the official form of artistic expression that dominated Sovetskoe iskusstvo (1931-1941), Literatura i iskusstvo (1942-1944), and Sovetskoe iskusstvo (1944-1952), which frequently criticized many writers.  Sovetskaia kul’tura (1953-1991) emerged during the thaw of the Khrushchev era. Although some restrictions had eased, the newspaper still toed the party line, censuring modern art exhibitions, avant-garde composers, and abstract painters. During the Gorbachev era, Sovetskaia kul’tura reflected the new cultural awakening.  Today, the newspaper offers interesting reviews and event listings, often focusing on the cultural life of Moscow and the regions. It is also known for its topical commentaries on popular culture and politics.
