Weekly digest: The lost. Nonconformism in the post-Soviet period

Publicly available information about Soviet nonconformist artists who were not favored by the Russian art establishment in the 90s and 2000s is scarce. Despite this, their works hold significant artistic merit. The Russian art establishment has since collapsed, a downfall linked to the relocation of some collectors to countries like the UK and Israel, the retirement of others, and the passing of some. Nonconformist art, once overlooked, is now gaining recognition in art historical research and attracting the attention of a new generation of collectors.
