Dymaxion Map description

SOUTH SOUTH uses the Dymaxion map or Fuller Projection Map. This is a projection created by Buckminster Fuller that can be unfolded and flattened to two dimensions. It aimed to address the distortions of other wide-spread projections such as the Mercator map, which have universally shaped senses of geography and geo-politics. In addition, it has no “right” way up and challenges the notion that North is “up” and South is “down”. Read more here.

The Fuller Projection Map design is a trademark of the Buckminster Fuller Institute. ©1938, 1967 & 1992. All rights reserved, www.bfi.org.

SOUTH SOUTH is delighted to announce the first of its Curatorial Projects titled I draw, therefore I think curated by artist and curator Jitish Kallat.

60 Artists
28 Galleries
29 Countries

This drawing project is prompted by Charles Darwin’s 1837 sketch ‘Tree of Life’ in which he scribbled down a framework for his speculations in his first “transmutation notebook”.

One exhibition. Two ways to view.
I draw, therefore I think can be viewed as an artwork-led Online Viewing Room and an interactive Miro board produced in collaboration with the Open Window Institute.

Rafael França | 29 – 31 October 2021

For this month’s FILM Programme, SOUTH SOUTH has partnered with Galeria Jaqueline Martins to show a selection of video works by renowned Brazilian artist Rafael França (1957-1991).

França was the forerunner in Brazil of experiments combining art and technology during the second half of the 20th century. In the 1980s, after doing installation, performance and urban intervention work in the group 3Nós3, he turned to innovative video art performances. His output subverted usual fictional forms, portraying himself and friends as challenging characters, manipulating elements such as the synchronism of speech, and altering the notions of time and space. Prematurely deceased in 1991, França addressed and complexified questions such as sexuality and the body, in artworks that were also characterized by intensive research into narrative possibilities.

SOUTH SOUTH is the place to discover artists working in the Global South. It is a wellspring of information and resources about the region. It is also a vanguard platform striving to find new ways to support artists and galleries.

The initiative seeks to address an imbalance in the global cultural framework by providing a means to explore a de-centred art world within a broader geographical context.

SOUTH SOUTH features year-round programming and content. Our inaugural event SOUTH SOUTH VEZA (23 February – 7 March 2021) presented an enterprising new format for exploring artists from the Global South, with participation from 56 galleries from 30 countries across 5 continents. Explore the VEZA talks programmes Think Tank and IN DIALOGUE for cross-regional conversations between curators, artists, collectors, writers and gallerists.

At the core of SOUTH SOUTH is the Archive. This community-built archive highlights seminal exhibitions, texts and moments that contributed to an expanding imaginary of curatorial and artistic practice in the Global South.

In the Featured section, the SOUTH SOUTH team maintains an ongoing, interview-based editorial component, including conversations, essays and other texts on arts practitioners and current events related to the Global South.
