"Nonconformism" is a phenomenon in the unofficial culture of the Soviet period, vividly manifested in the visual arts, music (Leningrad rock) and literature (samizdat). There are such prominent figures as M. Shemyakin, V. Tsoy, S. Kuryokhin, T. Novikov, S. Bugaev-Afrika, the group "Mitki", B. Grebenshchikov, I. Brodsky and others among the «second culture».

Founded in 1998, the Museum of Nonconformist Art was the first to speak about the need to preserve and study the legacy of the unofficial culture of the USSR. Its collection has more than 3000 works. The museum cooperates with a number of museums and leading galleries in Russia (including the State Hermitage and the Russian Museum), Europe and USA, as well as with specialized universities. The museum of nonconformist art annually holds more than 70 exhibitions and events; it is a member of the ICOM network.

The halls of the Museum are located in the space of the legendary art center "Pushkinskaya-10", founded by independent artists, representatives of non-conformist culture in 1989.
