HELP US GROW THE SG ART BOOK LIBRARY


SGABF is accepting submissions to the SG Art Book Library, a catalogue of published print materials that explore the creative possibilities of art book publishing to generate meaningful discourse. The Library believes in the importance of representing the diversity of our community, capturing the energy, vision, and voices of artists and practitioners.

Our collection prioritises art books that focus on sociopolitical concerns in Singapore and around the world—gender inequality, racial discrimination, human rights, LGBTQ+ issues, political activism, intersectional feminism, economic and environment struggles, and many more. We want to provide a safe, accessible space for art books that might not otherwise find their way into institutional collections.

Existing as a virtual space below, and occupying various physical spaces in Singapore over the course of the year, the Library is free and available for all to browse.

BGDM Zine: sharing

by Samantha Yap & Stephanie Burt

2018
Bubblegum and Death Metal (BGDM) is a feminist art platform and collective started by Samantha Yap and Stephanie Burt.

A reiteration of the essay titled 'Bubblegum and Heavy Metal' by Frances Gateward in "Sugar Spice and Everything Nice: Cinemas of Girlhood", focusing on Japanese animation with leading girl characters and alternative views on power—BGDM aims to explore the subtle shifts of identities in and between girls, which range from similar soft exteriors to deadly constructs. These shifts that impel them to act in a vast array of contradictory behaviors which occasionally pass into rebellion and a deep need to assert their individual autonomy.
