The aim of this paper is to analyze the concept of traumatropic nuclear community understood as community of shared physical location and collective experimentation. This concept is analyzed with reference to the works of the Polish photo artist Monika Niwelińska, who explores the process of losing memory and restoring it. Drawing on the concepts of necrocene and traumatropism, the paper argues that Niwelińska’s works constitute a curvature or growth on history, and thus fit in with the discursive sense of the apocalypse.
