212 Magazine is a large-format international biannual magazine based out of 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.

Available for purchase in bookstores, newsstands, museums and design shops in 40 countries.
