Part exhibition catalogue, part archive, and part provocation, this publication documents step up!, a 2013 pop-up exhibition of site-specific performances, events, and art and architecture installations that were situated on an essential pedestrian infrastructure typology – the staircase. The works reflected on conflict, ownership, responsibility, and cultural occupation as a way to celebrate the uniqueness and complexity of Hong Kong’s urban fabric. The publication includes an introductory essay by Melissa Cate Christ. Purchase it here.
