Dalton's "parties on paper" bring together artists, musicians, critics, novelists, cartoonists and other less-classifiable cultural producers. Mythtym compiles the greatest hits from previous zines, as well as a new, 100-page piece on the subject of mirrors: as symbols in horror stories, psychological metaphors, as material for psychedelic art and the disco ball.
In a self-reflexive narrative, the Egyptian author and human rights activist Nawal El Saadawi questions the meaning of homeland versus birthplace in a controversial location such as contemporary Cairo. She weaves personal childhood memories into the shifting Egyptian political climate, as well as the new social, intergenerational relations that currently exist.
If New York City is a state of mind, then Jorge Colombo captures the metropolis' thoughts like no other. Colombo's beautiful illustrations of New York City have graced the cover of "The New Yorker" several times, brilliantly depicting icons such as silhouetted rooftop water towers, the illuminated Chrysler Building at night, Fifth Avenue in the snow, or the ubiquitous hot dog stand.

This coy, enigmatic object, which falls somewhere between an illustrated anthology of short stories and a scrapbook of a visit to the 2006 Berlin Biennial, presents the works of more than 60 artists in a montage of historical photos, newspaper clippings and reference materials, mixed in with photos of the art itself, including both studio and installation views. The Book, despite its classical design and hardcover binding, is not just a textual complement to the exhibition, not so much a documentation, but an exhibition in book form, an artists' book that makes truly unusual use of texts and images. The 4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art is curated by Maurizio Cattelan, Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick.
