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. 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.Publisher:East View Information ServicesType:Article indexesRights:Licensed for all KU students, faculty, and staff connecting to the Internet.
