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 Anaïs Nin and Henry Miller, ...
s 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, André 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.
