“LA SOURCE DE L’INCENDIE”
Ambitions, motivations and frustrations - a book launch performance
Presentation of Bernd Kleinheisterkamps recent publication “Pirenópolis” – a surralistic city portrait.
“Pirenópolis is small town in the inland of Brazil. During the week Pirenópolis is a quiet, unhasty place. Most inhabitants still live on farming. Its historical center, the rural atmosphere and the countryside with a number of beautiful waterfalls around, attract people from all over, mainly from the nearby capital Brasilia. Especially on weekends and holidays. Why there is still such a remarkable number of Volkswagen Beetle all around, I don’t know exactly.”
“No, it’s not about cars, its about a city, I simply put a Beetle on your blind spot”
Pirenópolis: (greek) polis=town and pirinas = la source de l’incedie/du feu
Bernd Kleinheisterkamps (*1973) lives since 2007 in Brussels

Devonian Press invites Capecete Entretenimentos and Panaview @ Motto Berlin. 27.04.2013
Devonian Press is an independent press founded by Julien Bismuth and Jean-Pascal Flavien in 2005, in Rio de Janeiro. Since then, they have published 21 books and 20 posters. Some of their publications are linked to collaborative projects, such as “The Announcement” or “Plouf!”. In September 2006, Flavien and Bismuth collaborated with the musician and composer Giancarlo Vulcano, on a performance titled “The Announcement.” In August of that same year, Bismuth and Flavien did a performance with two boatsoff the coast of Rio de Janeiro. One boat, carrying the audience, encountered another boat, carrying Bismuth and Flavien. Upon meeting, the two artists communicated a text to the audience, consisting a written text, as well as its translation or illustration by a series of coded signals, from semaphore signals to Morse code and signal flag commands. The performance is described and documented in the related book, and was recreated on the Thames, for the Tate Modern, in 2009.
Posters were also designed and produced by Devonian Press for both performances.
Other publications are linked to individual projects. “Forgotten Time and Moments” and “Viewer,”
for example, described an architectural work, also titled “Viewer, which was built by Flavien near Rio de Janeiro in 2007. This building was both featured in the books and used as an office for the publishing house.
“no drama house”, and later “book furniture”, are linked to another architectural project of the same name, built in the exterior courtyard of the Giti Nourbakhsch Gallery in Berlin. “Monologues for Minerals” is both a collection of short stories by Bismuth, as well as the libretto for a 16-episode long audio work done in collaboration with Giancarlo Vulcano. “The error in the landscape” was produced to accompany an exhibition of the same name at Bloomberg Space, in 2010. Other titles, such as “A Hold!” or “Starts and Stops” are autonomous works.
In 2013, “dialogues” and “re- two persons house” were published in the wake of the “two persons house” built in São Paulo in 2010. Another book is compiling the contributions of all the people invited to live in the breathing house since 2012. “Landscape house” puts together the architectural models of a house that Flavien was planning to built when he first came to Rio de Janeiro in 2002.
At the occasion of this exhibition, Flavien is presenting the complete printed matters of Capacete Entretenimentos.
Capacete is an non-profit institution initiated by Helmut Batista in Rio de Janeiro in 1998. This is with the help of Capacete that Devonian Press could be imagined and started. Capacete was crucial in supporting and providing an occasion for Flavien’s “viewer” (2007) and “two persons house”(2010) to be built in Rio and Saõ Paulo. Helmut Batista participated actively to the experimentation of each of these projects.
Capacete published numerous books, magazine, etc, accompanying its various activities which include artist residencies, summer school, exhibitions, production of projects, etc. Many times artist were asked to create a specific design for the publication. Capacete also supported artist publications, or promoted books it own book series: livro para… (book to …) ; livro para ler (book to read), livro para morar (book to dwell), livro para responder (book to answer), …
Between 1998 e 2013 CAPACETE worked with: Andrea Fraser, Pierre Huyghes, Arto Lindsay, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Chelpa Ferro, Joaquim Koester, Julia Rometti e Victor Costales, Harum Farocki, Nobuyushi Araki, Sharen Lockart, Marepe, Rodney Graham, Eija-Liisa Athila, Falke Pisano, Max Hinderer, Mariana Castillo-Deball, Fernanda Gomes, Leonor Antunes, Gabriel Lester, Raimundas Malasauskas, Runo Lagomarsino, Adriana Lara, Jean-Pascal Flavien, Julien Bismuth, Raymond Chaves y Gilda Mantilla, Elfi Turpin, Louidgi Beltrame, Bik van der Pol, Renata Lucas, Tamar Guimarães, Kasper Akoj, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Christoph Keller, Manon de Boer, Christodoulos Panayiotou, Hans Christian Dany…
At the occasion of the exhibition, the books of Panaview will also be presented. Panaview is a compagny started by Helmut Batista, featuring touristic views of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. They are sometime providing a back ground economy that helps sustain Capacete and its various projects.
