Philosopher, mathematician, sociologist, and activist: Raquel Guitérrez’s biography has taken shape through political activism, guerilla (as a member of the Túpac Katari Guerilla Army), prison and social struggle, with a particular focus on the Bolivian indigenous cause and the women’s struggle with a discourse that is inseparable from practice, both in her books and in the research group she leads at the University of Puebla (Mexico), Raquel prioritises the reproduction and sustenance of life over the world of production that prevails in the policies and institutions of capitalist and patriarchal societies. In her discourse.

Raquel talks in terms of hydrological strategies: flows, streams, floods, rivers, tides, waves, and moisture, using them as analogies to diagnose the urgent need for a change of paradigm and “politics in the feminine” that radically transcends the inoperative oversimplification of the agenda of equity, and recognises the production of the commons as skills that need to be culturally cultivated.

SON[I]A talks to Raquel Gutiérrez about semantic revision and political experimentation, about the failure of “just add women and stir” policies, about popular feminisms and the women’s struggle, about what happens when Sumak Qamaña (living well) stops being a path and becomes a model, and about how to introduce the agenda of the autonomy of the body into her notion of “politics in feminine”.

We dig up some unreleased fragments of the conversation with artist, weaver, writer, poet and indigenous researcher Elvira Espejo Ayca that we were unable to include the first time around. We talked about the flow of linguistic structures and writing processes, introducing the notion of “oraliture” and the importance of the rhythm of song in the exchanges that take place in her community.

Elvira Espejo Ayca
more

Elvira Espejo Ayca is an indigenous artist, weaver, writer, poet and researcher. Her work brings to light collective strategies that resist monoculturalization, moving back and forth between the rural and urban, between ancestral practices and the colonial gaze, between the sentipensamiento (feeling-thinking) of indigenous peoples and the predominance of academic Eurocentrism. In this podcast, we take a deep dive into the  actions of the National Museum of Etnography and Folklore (MUSEF) of La Paz (Bolivia) in search of mutual understanding and respect, while weaving and reweaving the historical gaps and bridges between two worlds.

Zenaida Osorio
more

Zenaida Osorio provides a critical reading of the official account of Radio Sutatenza and of the representations of peasants in the archive. Through this case study, Zenaida reflects on the contrast between the national images (in this case Colombian) that are considered legitimate by networks of civil servants, media producers, and academic researchers.

Aura Cumes
more

Aura Cumes charts a lucid historical path through colonial processes, analysing the mechanisms of control, violence, and dispossession that have perversely shaped the identity of the native-servant, relegated in favour of the progress and well-being of white men, their families, and their capital. Racism and sexism thus progress side by side, in a web of exploitation in which hierarchies often overlap.
