Released in conjunction with the exhibition “CENTRAL BOOKING in Berlin,” this issue explores the challenges and rewards of cross-cultural artistic practice as it highlights the work of Berlin and Berlin-affiliated artists. Ilse Schreiber-Noll launches the issue with her project, “Searching For a New Planet,” which grapples with environmental issues; Sabra Booth’s “Mariposa Machismo,” also draws on the political and environmental in fascinating ways. Mark Waskow shares the history of The Waskowmium, Thomas Parker Williams discusses how music helps shape the design of his books, and Omar Olivera contributes another of his graphic explorations. Contextualizing this international curatorial project, Mark Staff- Brandl illustrates the opening essay for the Berlin catalog. Tina Flau writes of her forays into mixed media book making, and Despo Magoni delves into her work’s relationship with the human body. Editor Nina Pelaez brings the themes of this issue together in her essay on art and cultural exchange.
