The Space of Freedom

Apartment Exhibitions in Leningrad, 1964-1986

For the Russian nonconformist artists of the 1960s through the 1980s, a room or an apartment--whether one's own or someone else's--was a departure point into the world of art, a world free of limitations. An apartment, while limited in space, opened up a world of infinite space--the entire cosmos. The transformation of those apartments was accomplished by covering their walls from floor to ceiling with the art of unofficial artists who were forbidden to show their works in exhibiton halls and museums of the Soviet Union.

This volume illustrates works from the Museum of Noncomformist Art, St Petersburg, Russia, to focus on both the artwork shown in communal apartments and on the exhibition space of the apartments themselves as a significant part of the history of Russian art. It includes pieces by the most important figures in the history of these exhibitions and in the history of nonconformist painting.


"A welcome new resource that will be of interest to scholars and curators of Russian art, as well as to all art lovers."—Slavic and East European Journal
