On this episode, Yvette interviews Jasmine Magaña, a Salvi femme PhD student at Duke University who studies the artistic interventions of Cracky Rodriguez and the Fire Theory collective of Salvadoran artists. Jasmine breaks down the zones of silence created from the trauma of the Salvadoran civil war, explains how Fire Theory uses collective corporeality to disrupt these zones of absence and gaps in knowledge, and talks through the framework of “Salvadoran ignorance” as a state-sanctioned policy of disinvestment.
