Abstract: In this paper the phenomenon of soc-art is studied on the basis of Russian postmodernist poetry in the 70s and 80s of the 20th century. New authors develop a revived literary soc-art, different from the classical iconography of the Soviet art. Soc-art tran- sforms into an opposite of the Soviet official political language. Whereas the soc-art of the 70s and 80s uses the cultural clichés typical for the last „high style“ of the big empire, recently new time phenomena have joined the artifacts of socialism. The new soc-art bares the mythological equality of nature between Mickey Mouse and the Lea- der, allowing the two simulacra to be merged into one literary text.
