Reference noteWith a DVD in pocket at the back to accompany the Flip Book 'De Como Não Fui Ministro D'estado' especially created on the occasion of the exhibition 'Fortuna', by William Kentridge, at Instituto Moreira Salles (Rio de Janeiro) and at Fundação Iberê Camargo (porto Alegre) and at Pinacoteca do Estado (São Paulo) from 2012 to November 2013.

Kentridge has used the book Memórias Póstumas de Brás Cubas published by Clube do Livro in São Paulo in 1946 as the base on which he has drawn eighty numbered drawings to form the flip book which shows him walking and turning.

Flipping from back to front and thus allowing the illustrations to fall on the recto, shows the animation backwards. Flipping from front to back shows the animation correctly but the pages fall incorrectly. The pages of the original book have not all been used and are sequenced incorrectly. This will be corrected in a future edition.
