  Abstract:  This article proposes a re-evaluation, from the perspective of art history and theory, of the various politicizations and aesthetic avatars of the Romanian fine arts avant-garde during the years of the Socialist Realism ideology (1945-1964). Therefore, we have pointed out some aesthetic dilemmas of the avant-garde in the Romanian fine arts, capturing the tension of the confrontation between the avant-garde ideal of a total art and the new constraints imposed by the totalitarian art ideal, respectively between the avant-garde art’s ideal of a synthesis and the art for all desiderata, specific to the Socialist Realism ideology.

Keywords: Socialist Realism ideology, total art, totalitarian art, tutelary avant-garde, dependent avant-garde
