Only the three-part Chronology of Russian History: 867–1950 covered a much more ambitious period of time (pl. 5), and it is here that we see Maciunas trying to grasp history in its totality.

In the diagram, however, Maciunas also exposes the limits of Soviet arts and culture policy, which not only instrumentalized artists, but also committed them to a priori self-chastisement.
