This article shows the problem of the correlation of official and unofficial culture in Soviet cultural discourse. This distinction is not obvious and becomes part of the tactics of the artist himself in a dialogue with the authorities, acting as his reaction to the existing political situation. The artist makes a choice either in favor of cooperation with the authorities, or takes the side of the opposition to the existing regime. Soviet case shows "rules of the game" in every possible way lowered the importance of unofficial culture, making accent on the official culture, through which the achievements of socialist construction were demonstrated. Nevertheless, this could not stop the development of such a vivid phenomenon of Soviet art of the 20th century as nonconformism.
