portrait of Silvina Giaganti

Silvina Giaganti

Silvina Giaganti is an Argentinian philosopher and writer. She published her first collection of poems tarda en apagarse in 2018. Her poems are autobiographical and tackle issues that Giaganti,faces in her personal and professional life. She says her poems emerged from memory, from moments she couldn’t forget that are connected to places in her life, streets and neighbourhoods she lived in.

Recurring themes in her work are love and the loss of love, family dysfunction and questions of belonging. Her poems focus on female alliances, friendships and exploration of queerness, which makes her work sound organically and subtly feminist.
