South as a State of Mind
Past and Present Issues
with Michelangelo Corsaro and Laura Preston

South as a State of Mind is a contemporary art magazine founded in Athens by Marina Fokidis in 2012. In its new, temporary role as the documenta 14 journal, the sixth issue arrived one and a half years before the exhibition opened in Athens and Kassel in 2017; the fourth guest issue is due out this summer. Past editorial assistant and documenta 14 curatorial assistant Michelangelo Corsaro joins documenta 14 associate editor Laura Preston on a discussion and readings from past and present issues.

He worked for Kunsthalle Athina and South as a State of Mind until 2015. Michelangelo is currently working for documenta 14 as curatorial assistant.
