South as a State of Mind “Maintenance”
Issue 10, Summer/Fall 2018


South as a State of Mind was founded in Athens in 2012 in order to face the future amidst bleak prognoses brought on by economic crisis and crypto colonization. During the course of its first five issues it became a gathering place for shared intensities and for a growing affective network. Between 2015 and 2017, it was reconfigured as the journal of documenta 14 for four issues.

Now, a new cycle begins. For this crucial 10th issue, South as a State of Mind is in a transitional state – maintaining its energy, maintaining an independence that strengthens this particular state (of mind), nurturing friendships (including the commitment to Athens as a base and to the South as parable for shared direction). Its contributors offer rich and expansive historical perspectives, cultural nuances and prognoses for the insurgencies of spirit – reframing our material conditions on the ground, so we can maintain our multiple, micropolitical, mindful sovereignties.
