The "neo-classicist" and "primitivist" retrostyle art pieces of the 1960s and 1970s were reinvented and changed by the ECCA “Tea Factory” young artists. Artists don’t want to mock the Socialist era in their approach, it is more likely an attempt to study out the substitution of ideas and to investigate the historical events. "The normative definition of correct style for true Socialist Realism restricted the scope to explore and openly acknowledge alternative art-historical models. Dogma was particularly uncompromising in the immediate post-war years, the "Zdanov era", - Susan Reid, The "art memory": retrospectivism in Soviet painting of the Breznev era, Art of the Soviets : painting, sculpture and architecture in a one-party state, 1917-1992, Manchester : Manchester Univ. Press, cop. 1993.
