Socialist realism Szocialista realizmus
Socialist realism is a style of realistic art which was developed in the Soviet Union and became a dominant style in other communist countries. The Soviet Regime, after the Congress of 1934, laid down four rules for what became known as "Socialist Realism": That the work be: 1.Proletarian: art relevant to the workers and understandable to them. 2.Typical: scenes of every day life of the people. 3.Realistic: in the representational sense. 4.Partisan: supportive of the aims of the State and the Party. The political doctrine behind socialist realism also underlay the pervasive censorship of Communist societies, access to foreign art and literature was also restricted on aesthetic grounds. Bourgeois art and all forms of experimentalism and formalism were denounced as decadent, degenerate and pessimistic, and therefore anti-Communist in principle. Socialist realism was the principal style in most of the countries of the Soviet bloc during the 1950s-60s. Since the street was a main venue for socialist realist hundreds of buildings, statues, mosaics and frescoes were created and put on display in the public space. Budapest still has several examples of this style - although the politically most hardliner statues have been secluded in the famous Memento Park.

A szocreál a szocialista realizmus kifejezésbõl képzett mozaikszó, a szovjet minták alapján a népi demokráciákban elterjesztett irodalom, képzõmuvészet, építészet hétköznapi értelemben használatos jelzõje Magyarországon szovjet hatásra és minta alapján, alakult ki a II. világháború után. A szocreál mint kötelezõ fogalom jelen volt minden mûvészeti ágazatban, így az építészetben, a képzõmûvészetben, a zenében vagy éppen az irodalomban és a filmmuvészetben. A magyar szocreál építészet a legösszefogottabban az új, városrészméretû lakótelepek építésénél bontakozott ki. Az ebben a stílusban létrehozott épületeket a köznyelv gúnyosan "sztálinbarokk" jelzõvel illeti. A városképet azonban nem csak a sztálinbarokk épületek, hanem szobrok, mozaikok és freskók is gyakran "szinesítették". Ez a sorozat most Budapest jellegzetes szocreál maradványait mutatja be.
