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
