The new issue of South as a State of Mind explores the layers of coexistence. A concept that is easier said than lived. The current issue is partially inspired by various past ‘editorial’ endeavours.
One of them is a publication titled, Global Visions: Towards a New Internationalism in the Visual Arts (ed. by Jean Fisher), which stemmed from the Iniva symposium, A New Internationalism, held at the Tate Gallery (now Tate Britain) in London in 1994, a quarter of a century ago.
What has really changed since then, besides the terminology? Two of the participants, Sarat Maharaj and Olu Oguibe address this question by responding to their original texts, which you will find reprinted in the issue.
