212 Magazine Issue 12 (the Earthlings Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Autumn is here and so is our new issue!
We are proud to present our twelfth issue: Earthlings.
Issue 12 of 212 Magazine features snippets from the lives of earthlings who inhabit the folds of this fragile crust. Perplexed, they question their existence and its circumstances: where are we? What universe are we in? Which cycle are we in? What age are we in? When did it start? Will we witness its end? Who we are? Who we are with? What is the explanation for all of this? This issue also takes a close look at the space entrepreneurs, eager to defy gravity and transmit our voices to other worlds, as well as the scientists, who traverse time, reaching back millions of years prior to the Anthropocene, in their search for traces of lost civilisations underground.

212 magazine is a new biannual publication from Istanbul. It contains short fiction and long-form reportage; distinctive photo essays and revealing interviews. Even though it was born in the city where east meets west (as the love-worn cliche goes), the magazine seeks to transcend the loaded dichotomies of Istanbul’s favourite metaphor, and extends its gaze far beyond the region. The name “212” comes from the area code for Istanbul, but it also happens to be the area code for New York – a piece of misdirection that’s characteristic of the magazine’s ethos: as soon as you try too hard to close in on your subject it has a habit of defying you. Rather than pigeonholing ideas into narrow parameters, 212’s contributors trace connections that will surprise and delight. Each issue is centred around a loose theme – the first is Strange Days. 212 aims to be as challenging as it is influential – to provide an inclusive space for ideas and perspectives to mix without prejudice and better interrogate social, artistic and cultural phenomena from the region and around the world.
