"Andrea Tippel was born in 1945 in Hirsau in the Black Forest and grew up as the middle of three sisters in Bremen. Her parents were the architects Maria Alexandra Mahlberg and Klaus Tippel. In 1969, she became a state-certified actress, then studied philosophy and psychology in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. In 1971, Tippel moved to Berlin and began creating drawings, objects, composites, texts and books, as well as a few oil paintings. She had her first exhibition with Tomas Schmit in 1974, started making artist books in 1980 and editions for various galleries from 1987. She maintained close friendships with Suzanne Baumann, Henriette van Egten, Ludwig Gosewitz, Dorothy Iannone, Dieter Roth, Tomas Schmit, Jan Voss and Emmett Williams. Tippel was appointed as a professor at the Hochschule fu¨r Bildende Ku¨nste Hamburg in 1997 and co-founded the Dieter Roth Academy (DRA) in 2000. She passed away in 2012 in Berlin. From the early 1990s onwards, Andrea Tippel frequently recorded audio works including readings, songs and field recordings. Her literary centrepiece undoubtedly is "Ich und Sie", a novel composed entirely of three-letter words. A complete reading was released on Tochnit Aleph in 2019 on two CDs. This 7" single collects three improvised songs, originally titled "seltsame Lieder/improvisiert", recorded to cassette tape presumably in the mid-to-late 1990s. All three tracks are playful and funny, but at the same time they unfold three philosophical topics, typical of Tippel's dry humour." (label info) Edition of 200 with reproductions of drawings by Andrea Tippel on the sleeve and on the labels, and an additional postcard.
