The Electronic Archive “Project for the Study of Dissidence and Samizdat” (PSDS) includes the database of Soviet samizdat periodicals, electronic editions of selected samizdat journals, illustrated timelines of dissident movements, and interviews with activists. The Project aims to make rare materials more widely available and to provoke questions about the trajectories of groups and individuals within the varied field of Soviet dissidence and nonconformist culture.
ВЕСТНИК ТЭИИ (HERALD OF THE AEFA), No. 1 (1984), Leningrad, was compiled by Sergei Kovalsky to distribute news about the Association for Experimental Fine Arts (Товарищество экспериментального изобразительного искусство) created by Kovalsky, Yuri Novikov and others in 1981 as an unofficial council for Leningrad nonconformist artists. One other issue from 1986 has been recorded, but the total number of issues has not been confirmed. This copy of the first issue comes from the Sigov/Tarshis Collection (F. 97) at the Research Centre for East European Studies at Bremen University.
