As the overarching theme of this fourth edition we have chosen “Change”. With a wealth of inspiring and surprising stories, interviews and analyses, the aim of TWELVE is not to be a review or a look back, but rather a look forward to the developments, new opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
In our rapidly changing lives, we need to find little islands where we can wind down and even switch off now and again. One of these islands is art: it allows us to pause for a moment, to retreat into contemplation, to reflect on what we have seen. Perhaps you will also be inspired to do this by the artworks of the renowned street artists we invited to visualise the subject of “Change” at the beginning of each chapter. Take some time out, sit back, relax and immerse yourself in this copy of TWELVE.
Amongst others with Dirk Ahlborn (CEO Hyperloop), Julian Nida-Rümelin (Philosopher & former State Minister), Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (Former Federal Defence Minister), Giovanni di Lorenzo (Editor-in-Chief of DIE ZEIT) and Anastacia (Singer).
