The problem of understanding and symbolizing memorable events in art unfolds both in the individual and in the collective field. The carriers of memory and trauma associated with certain events are not only their direct participants and victims of events. They are also those artists who are recipients of the experience of past generations, drawing information from various sources left by historians, politicians, or eyewitnesses.
