This paper investigates creative work that now takes place in newly-established cultural institutions in Moscow non-governmental MoCAs and art-centres situated in refurbished Soviet buildings where mostly defunct, socialist-era factories had been located. The exploration of creative work in Russian art-centers is of particular interest for the debates on creative labour because it promises to record the transition of contemporary art market from Soviet cultural monopoly to the market economy in the conditions of the real-time formation of new informal standards of cultural production. The present paper evaluates what informality does mean within these new standards of creative work organization. Although the new art-centres have declared that they will produce culture ‘in a new and innovative way’, they still preserve in their functioning many residues of the ‘old system’ such as the practices of ‘blat’, favour-swapping and clientelism, wages-in-pockets, pilfering and dubious sales of art collections. The paper is based on an empirical study conducted in 2016 and includes 25 in-depth interviews with cultural workers employed full-time and 20 live observations in offices and exhibition areas of the art-centres.

In contemporary competitive circumstances destinations strive to raise touristic attractiveness by means of branding. Branding is very often realized with the help of cultural policy. Being a touristic city, St.Petersburg has established an academic image and attracts a steady category of tourists. This research paper is aimed at studying the development of contemporary visual art in St.Petersburg and its influence on the brand of the city. Contemporary art could help to attract new categories of tourists, including young people and creative community. Moreover, the renovation of the city image would contribute to the inflow of additional investments to the culture sphere. This particular study will probably help to support the high touristic attraction of St.Petersburg and raise its level as well. Two methods were used in order to achieve the aim of the study. During the expert survey a questionnaire was developed. It helped to find out an expert opinion about the influence of contemporary art on tourist destination brand (experts are managers of organisations, fine art experts, employees of advertisement departments and departments which work with tourist groups). Content-analysis was used as well in order to analyze the sites of touristic firms for the presence of information about organisations which represent contemporary art. Recommendations for the effective influence of contemporary visual art on the brand of St.Petersburg were prepared.
