Item description for Documenta 12 Magazine No 1-3 Reader (Documenta 12 Magazine) by Roger M Buergel...

An experimental magazine project by the creative minds behind documenta 12, the world's most important contemporary art event (June 16 to September 23, 2007) The documenta 12 magazines are a collective worldwide editorial project linking over eighty print and on-line periodicals, as well as other media. In advance of the exhibition in Kassel, documenta 12 magazines have opened up a central site for reflection and visual contemplation. Since early 2006, influential journals in the realm of art, as well as specialist publications operating in discursive fields beyond the major art centres, have been publishing and discussing contributions ? essays, interviews, photo reportages, features, interventions from artists and articles of fiction ? in relation to documenta 12's three main themes: Is modernity our antiquity? What is bare life? What is to be done? The documenta 12 magazine will subsequently assemble and summarize these debates and provide a selection of core texts and images. Good texts help us to understand more about what we see: in this sense, the documenta 12 magazine aims to provide background knowledge prior to the exhibition, without restricting in any way the individual experience of viewing the artworks themselves. The broadly conceived themes of Modernity?, Life! and Education: are in fact intended to increase our appetite for images, because the significance of art lies within art itself ? in its ambiguity, contrariness and stubborn independence. The editors: Roger M. Buergel, artistic director documenta 12, exhibition organizer and author. Lives and works in Kassel, Germany. Ruth Noack, curator documenta 12, lecturer, writer, and exhibition organizer. Lives and works inKassel, Germany. Roger M. Buergel and Ruth Noack last curated the exhibition The Government (Kunstraum der Universit?t L?neburg; MACBA-Museu d?Art Contemporani de Barcelona; Miami Art Central; Secession, Vienna; Witte de With, Rotterdam, 2003?05). Georg Sch?llhammer, director documenta 12 magazines, editor-in-chief and founding editor of springerin ? Hefte f?r Gegenwartskunst, author and curator. Lives and works in Vienna. Numerous publications, exhibitions and projects on contemporary art and architecture.

Reviews - What do customers think about Documenta 12 Magazine No 1-3 Reader (Documenta 12 Magazine)?

quite deceiving  Oct 1, 2007
Frankly, I was expecting much better articles. Good interview with Rancière, but the understanding of Agamben's concept of bare life is quite superficial.
