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.

JURONG, MY LOVE

Dan Koh

Published by The Substation, 2017
Issue 03 features a personal essay, ‘Jurong, My Love’, by Dan Koh. Using the route of the no. 99 bus as a guide, the personal and the historical are inextricably linked as the essay charts Jurong’s development as a neighbourhood intertwined with anecdotes from the writer’s own personal history. A love letter to a place commonly reduced to a joke about being “practically Malaysia”, the essay makes a case that Jurong, with its quirks and constant redevelopment, is Singapore, and Singapore is Jurong.

The book also features family photographs from the writer as well as charming illustrations by Tay Kaiyee.
