Abstract
The article focuses on the analysis of the relationship between radical political movements and “artistic riots” in Russia in the 1910s, that changed the world history and new art. The Proletkult activities and other cultural initiatives of the Soviet government are set as an example to trace the mechanics of using the latest artistic achievements to create a mythologized image of the Great Revolution. On the contrary, the history of studying the Russian formalistic movements of the 1920s, which began in the late 1950s, is considered a mirror image of this process. From the myth of the avant-garde as a single impulse, stopped on the run, the researchers refer to documentary and intent study of the certain events and trends. Demythologization goes in two ways: through clarifying the facts and reconstruction of the semantic context of art of the 1910-1920s. It is noteworthy that in recent years these tendencies merge to an increasing extent, demonstrating the creation of new methodological approaches to the study of the subject.
