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.

ABOUT SOUTH SOUTH

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.
