I read a "I'm Not There" movie review in Times.
Vulnerable as Mr. Dylan is to misunderstanding (“I couldn’t believe after all these years/You didn’t know me better than that” in “Idiot Wind”), he also actively solicits it (“Something is happening here/But you don’t know what it is/Do you, Mr. Jones?” in “Ballad of a Thin Man”).

For the sentence "Vulnerable as Mr. Dylan is to misunderstanding , he also actively solicits it."
I wonder why this sentence has no conjunction? And does this sentence mean: "Dylan is easily misunderstood, but he still seeks to be misunderstood."
Thanks for your time.
