The ordinary issue of this number in collaboration with Artschwager, who requested the issue to be devoted to the theme of art and reason. Text in German and English, with essays by various hands focusing on the theme including J. C. Oates, Arthur C. Danto, Laszlo F. Földenyi, Georg Kohler, Alan Lightman, and Patrick McGrath, among others. A photographic reproduction of the original work created for the deluxe issue by Artschwager, "Hairbox," 1990, is included in this regular issue. In addition, a photographic series by David Byrne is this number's 'Insert'. Each volume is published in direct collaboration with one or more artists; their work is featured in three to four in-depth essays, and they contribute a special art work or edition. The artists work closely with the editors in selection and matching of authors and images, as well as the layout of their own dedicated collaborative volume.
