SOUTH as a State of Mind grew up fast to become a bi-annual contemporary arts and culture magazine published by Epomenos Stathmos (Greece) and Phileleftheros Publishers (Cyprus) and distributed internationally. People from different -literal or metaphorical- Souths are renegotiating the southern attitude, partly to define it and partly to invent it. Possessed by a spirit of absurd authority, we are trying to contaminate the prevailing culture with ideas that derive from southern mythologies, such as the perfect climate, easy living, chaos and the dramatic temperament, to name but a few. Each 160-page issue includes a thematic section and columns inspired and named after key traits of southern life. 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. Opening up an unexpected dialogue among neighbourhoods, cities, regions and approaches, SOUTH as a State of Mind is both a magazine and a meeting point for shared intensities.
