SINGAPORE ART BOOK FAIR

dates ANNOUNCING SOON


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.

Sex Industry Apologist

Anonymous

Year Unknown
“From 2002 to 2009 I worked at a project for sex workers. I wanted to work there because it was non-judgemental about sex work and was user-led. I was aware that mainstream politicians, the mainstream media, and mainstream (as well as supposedly ‘radical’) feminism were generally uninterested in the diversity of sex workers’ experiences. [...] sex workers are frequently absent from discussions about what’s best for them, for obvious reasons: even where sex work is legal or decriminalised, there can still be a lot at stake in terms of social stigma, and many feminist spaces continue to present themselves as a hostile environment to any sex worker (or sex workers’ rights advocate) who doesn’t share the notion that sex work is violence against women.

This zine uses media articles from the last several years as a springboard for me to articulate my issues with ill-informed portrayals of sex work - or those working to a specific political agenda, namely the eradication of sex work.”
