Assa – initially this term referred to Leningrad art movement ascending to the circles of necrorealist artists. Home academy, formed by Timur Novikov, who united the New Artists, was also called Assa and from these entrails in 1985 began the expansion of new culture, setting up to remain a symbol of Perestroika. In the mid 80’s due to the fusion of genres of theater, art and music as well as mingling of artists from different places, this movement comprised other street groups, musicians and artists, making new ways of self-expression and their new art.  The apogee of this movement was shooting of the movie with the same name “Assa” in 1987, which became a certain symbol for the young blood of Perestroika, but failed to depict the whole width and depth of the movement itself.
