Knock on Any Door (A Revised History): Art and Social Engagement in Calgary, 1912-2012 documents historical non-art activities that have occurred in or around Calgary throughout the last century and re-interprets them as if they were contemporary art projects. A collection of nine essays edited by Eric Moschopedis and Mia Rushton, Knock on Any Door is the inaugural project of the Department of Forgotten Histories (DoFH). Founded by Rushton and Moschopedis, the purpose of DoFH is to recover and chronicle historical community collaborations, social activities, or acts of generosity that were never intended to be creative acts, but when viewed through the prism of contemporary art, are.

With an Introduction by Jacqueline Bell, and essays by Dick Averns, Linda Carreiro & RICHard SMOLinski, Bogdan Cheta, Kris Demeanor, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Doug Haslam, Nancy Luu & Kerry Woodcock, David van Belle, and Bree Zorel.
