The idea of the South has a long history. In the recent past it has been revived as a possible frame for representing the cultural context of not just regions that are geographically located in the South, but also those that share a common post-colonial heritage. In this essay I explore the affinities and tensions between the South and parallel terms such as Third World and Antipodes. I argue that the South can extend the existing debates on cross-cultural exchange, and provide a useful perspective for representing what I call a ‘spherical consciousness’ in contemporary art.
