IGUARAN, Alina Peña. The turns in La sangre de la aurora: The aesthetic of fragment and the remain. Cuad. CILHA [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.2, pp.69-91. ISSN 1852-9615.

The border of what is recognizable and sensitive, and what it is not, delimitates the dispute between the word and the scream; the sentence and the noise (Rancière, 2011). The official historic account configures and organizes what remains inside and outside of it. From the Final Report (2003), about Human rights violations perpetrated during the conflict within Shining Path and the Peruvian State Armed Forces (1980-2000), the Commission of Truth and Reconciliation bolded the use of sexual violence as a strategy of control. In this sense, the body of the women become a symbolic territory to delimit and reinforce social order (Segato, 2014). The present paper inquires how La sangre de la aurora (2013) by Claudia Salazar, essays different aesthetic turns to break the social frames that supports the official representation of history; and calls the catastrophe as a mean to configurate violence. In addition, it articulates what has been acknowledged as noise. The paper explores, based on the concept remain (Agamben, 2006), the turns in contemporary literature when it uses different sources and research methodologies to approach the horror in contexts of violence. Among these remains are memory, archives, and testimonies.
