Cara Page is curating community installations to shed light on historical and contemporary uses of policing and surveillance through scientific racism & the Medical Industrial Complex. Through her work she seeks to confront and transform the centuries of testing, experimentation and institutionalization of Black/POC & Indigenous, LGBTQI, Women, Youth, People with Disabilities and Migrant communities being wrongly targeted as expendable based on who is systemically defined as who is ‘healthy’, who is ‘diseased’ and who is ‘fit for survival’.
