About us

Our Mission

To present fresh perspectives from the Global South*,
bringing much needed diversity to international waters.
We work to shatter bias and build connections between
cutting-edge artists and passionate clients.

*Global South: refers to a geopolitical South rather than a geographical one;
it was first introduced as a less pejorative alternative to terms
such as Third World or Developing Countries.

Who We Are

Süd is an illustration agency based in Berlin and working internationally

Antonia is a multitasker creative and analog wizard from Düsseldorf based in Berlin. As an art buyer, photographer, videomaker and stylist, she has acquired almost a decade of valuable experience in the editorial and corporate fields, working with brands such as ARTE Magazin, Axel Springer, Bosch, Chrismon, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, GQ Germany, de Persgroep, Porsche Consulting, VG Media and de Volkskrant (both newspaper and magazine).

Her many occupations have given her insight into both sides of the coin, providing her with an in-depth understanding of what is to be on the skin of both an artist and art buyer.

Finding the right talents, developing ideas, conveying aesthetics and captivating an audience are her strengths, as well as navigating firmly but smoothly through the daily frenzy of short deadlines that prevails in our creative cosmos.

Antonia speaks German, Dutch and English
