SG Art Book Library is a catalogue of published print materials that generate further discourse on ideas, practices, and current affairs through art.

The Library believes in the importance of representing the diversity of our community, capturing the energy, vision, and voices of artists and practitioners, as well as showcasing the creative possibilities of art book publishing.

Our collection of zines focus on sociopolitical concerns in Singapore and around the world — gender inequality, racial discrimination, human rights, LGBTQ+ rights, protests, activism, feminism, social, political, economic and environment struggles, etc.

Starting as a virtual space, it provides access to our selection of zines and art books from Singapore and around the world.

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.
