'The pre-perestroika atmosphere was an extraordinary occurrence. It existed only because of the oppression and persecution by the authorities. We lived underground. There is nothing like this in the West. We are now like everybody else. We live normal lives now under normal conditions. Then, it was very special, like living in a hot house…. Since we couldn’t sell anything, we felt free' (Ivan Chuikov, quoted in ‘Soviet Dissident Artists’, Rutgers University Press, 1995).
