In a society that believes that beauty cannot exist without youth, an “affective capital” arises, mapping onto and intensifying existing social hierarchies. An exclusive med-spa thrives in an industry town from which its primary beauty product, Botox, is sourced. Working in a regulatory blind spot and driven by high demand, the town produces an unauthorized surfeit of the product. The resulting proliferation has made its deadly source, Botulinum toxin A, easily available, causing a series of airborne botulism outbreaks. Using the town’s plaza space as a microcosm, Denervation dramatizes the impact of this unsecured supply chain, giving us a glimpse of the lives of the town’s residents.
