Substation Chapbook #1 – A Public Square


Issue 01 reveals a glimpse into the creation of the gold foil staircase by the artist Priyageetha Dia, the ensuing response by the public and authorities, as well as what these responses reveal about the nature of public art and public space in Singapore.

Launched in conjunction with the Substation’s Discipline the City activities is a series of chapbooks that provide diverse responses to the theme. Edited by Adeline Chia, Associate Editor of Art Review Asia, formats range from essays to photography and illustrations. Content includes topics as specialised as the architectural and urban planning aspects of spatial organisation, to the cultural and social aspects of discipline, such as how bodies and sexualities are policed.

Issues were released monthly from May – September 2017.
