An interest in language and reading and address—its uses and abuses and affects, as public rhetoric or private literary production—has led the documenta 14 publications program forward. The documenta 14 publications explore language itself; they do not simply employ it in the service of aesthetic, political, and discursive regimes. The disparate forms that language takes—as letters, stories, parables, essays, diaries, speech acts, legal documents, propaganda, poetry, and hybrid literary other—and the ways in which these forms structure our being in and reading of the world, have all found their way into the documenta 14 publications. These include the documenta 14 journal South as a State of Mind; The documenta 14 Reader, a critical anthology exploring issues of economy, language, and the coloniality of power; and the documenta 14: Daybook, devoted to the commissioned artists in the documenta 14 project. Each of these publications articulates larger art-historical and political concerns while focusing on the daily activities and practices of artists and writers and the forms of resistance to be found therein.
