Summary/Abstract: From the last decade of the XX century, crucial changes can be detected in Lithuanian culture and arts. Social and cultural shifts are conditions for these changes. Artists began to look into their inner world and to seek answers for existential questions. For the analysis of art and for the creation process, K. G. Jung‘s archetypal theory, which declares that individuals get their creative impulses in the collective unconsciousness, was an inspiration The article analyses empirical data of the “creative process“ by studying the various artists themselves. Jung’s archetypal theory broadens limits of formal and biographical analysis.
