Where the first edition of the 'documenta 12 Magazine'
was dedicated to the manifold meanings of the term
modernity, the multiple forms of modernism and the
local dialects of modernity, the subject now is
nothing less than 'Life!'. The selection of articles
all revolve around the central question of documenta
12: "What is bare life?" They discuss the meaning of
the term "bare life", a term which has become a
central conception in many contemporary aesthetic and
political discussions. The articles show that bare
life can have many facets, even unexpected, light,
lyrical or even cheerful facets.

'documenta 12 Magazine' is published by TASCHEN and is
available in bookstores as well as the internet under and
