POWER Project: Confined Terrain Lecture: The Brown Body in the Landscape, Detention, and Technology

CONFINED TERRAIN: The Brown Body in the Landscape, Detention, and Technology

Risa Puleo and Mev Luna will present their respective research into contemporary conditions of incarceration and engage in a dialogue with each other and the audience afterwards. Puleo looks to the borderlands and the work of the art collective Postcommodity (Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, and Kade L. Twist) to examine the means by which one enters an institution of confinement. While Luna critiques the enthusiasm of technology to “democratize” both the Prison Industrial Complex and Healthcare system, often targeting the same demographics.
