Cities mirror us. What happens when a city is over-designed and over-regulated? Is there still space for diversity, or does the city implicitly shape a kind of model citizen? Who has the right to the city and who doesn't? This series of six chapbooks provide diverse responses to The Substation's theme for 2017: Discipline the City. Edited by Adeline Chia, the books touch on topics such as the role of art in the production of public space, Singapore's fraught relationship with sand, and how fat bodies are policed in capitalist societies.
