Jane Goodall, in 'When the present comes to get you: proposes that our conception of memories as belonging to the past may be a category mistake, since we are never so present as at those times when a memory is seeded or when it re-emerges. The most potent memories stop time, forcing past events back into the present as experience that refuses to stop happening; this is especially the case with memories of violence. Violence, Goodall suggests, is 'when the present comes to get you: This, rather than the treatment of violence as image and spectacle, is a feature of much recent art, revealing a new cultural maturity in the way artists portray the experience of violent events.
