Dis-Ease is about how we imagine disease and how that affects what we do when we encounter illness, outbreaks, doctors, treatments and disability in real life. It dives deep into the weird, wild archives of medical imaging, public health messaging and pop-culture outbreak narratives to understand how ideas have moved between science, science fiction and political ideology over the past century. Ultimately, Dis-Ease is a provocation to re-think how we define both the “public” and “health” in public health — who is included, what counts as care and what it means to be sick or well.
