Item description for Wolfgang Paalen's DYN:The Complete Reprint by Christian Kloyber...

In 1942, while living in Mexico City, the cosmopolite and Austrian expatriate Wolfgang Paalen (1905--1959) founded a new periodical devoted to the arts, which he named DYN (greek), "the possible". Paalen invited writers Anas Nin and Henry Miller, photographers Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Eva Sulzer, anthropologists and ethnologists Alfonso Caso and Miguel Covarrubias, and artists Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Robert Motherwell, and Jackson Pollock to contribute. Articles by Albert Einstein, Bertrand Russell, Andr Breton, Octavio Paz, and Gordon Onslow Ford also appeared in subsequent issues of DYN. Only five issues of DYN were published before the periodical came to an abrupt end in 1944. These journals have since served as inspiration to a small yet influential group of modern artists and thinkers. This facsimile reprint presents exact reproductions of all five issues of DYN in one compact volume.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wolfgang Paalen's DYN:The Complete Reprint?

Wonderful reprint of the entire run of Wolfgang Paalen's DYN magazine, published in the '40s. My only gripe is with the non-translated (into English) texts.... Still, I should brush up on my French. IF you're interested in Surrealist Ethnology, Gordon Onslow-Ford, Paalen, and related esoterica then this book is for you.
