Abstract The scientific novelty of the presented report consists in establishing possible connections between the philosophical and artistic world of Russian utopia and the field of ideas of the 1920s–1930s, including not only literature (Vladimir Odoevsky, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Evgeny Zamyatin, Vivian Itin, Yakov Okunev et al.) but also painting (Alexander Labas, Konstantin Yuon), and the architecture of Russian constructivism and avant-garde (Georgy Krutikov, Ivan Nikolaev, Ivan Leonidov, Yakov Chernikhov and many others), in clarifying the role of new art in the formation of the Soviet space and its perception. The embodiment of ideas and words, aesthetic and psychological perception of the forming new mental space, the complex relationship between social ideas, their transformation into ideas about the future world and future man, not only in post-revolutionary literature but also in a broader historical and cultural context, is an extremely important topic for the entire revolutionary culture. The authors focus on the role of new art as a means of interpreting the world in creating a new social mythology and the indoctrination of people.
