SOUTH is an arts and culture magazine published in Athens and distributed internationally. Possessed by a spirit of absurd authority, we will try to contaminate the prevailing culture with ideas that derive from southern mythologies such as the “perfect climate”, “easy living”, “chaos”, “corruption”, and the “dramatic temperament”, among others. Through our twisted – and “southern” – attitude…, expressed through critical essays, artist projects, interviews and features, we would like to give form to the concept of the South as a “state of mind” rather than a set of fixed places on the map. People from different – literal or metaphorical – ‘Souths’ will renegotiate the southern attitude, partly to define it and partly to invent it, within the post-crisis world. Opening up an unexpected dialogue among neighbourhoods, cities, regions and approaches, SOUTH will be both a magazine and a meeting point for shared intensities.
