In 1977

KIPPI
aka
Martin Kippenberger

visited
ANGELIK RIEMER
in her studio in Ansbacher Straße.

As ANGELIK had printed a portrait of me
to celebrate my 30th birthday
KIPPI now asked ANGELIK
to draw a portrait of him
and print
45 sheets
from a copper plate.

As a "reward" ANGELIK kept
six numbered prints
seven E.A. prints
and
KIPPI gave her his
red
cube wall fridge.

When ANGELIK started to draw
I quickly picked up my Beaulieu camera
and started to shoot the portrait scenery.

Whilst working, a telephone call came in
postponing the work for same minutes
giving time for me to look around in the studio
and for KIPPI the time to grab a cigarette.

In 2008 I digitized this silent S8-film
and added "XXX" as a soundtrack.
