**33 copies** Die Tödliche Doris was born out of West Berlin’s lively post-punk community in the early ‘80s. Along with Einstürzende Neubauten, Malaria, Sprung Aus Den Wolken and Frieder Butzmann, Die Tödliche Doris ranks amongst the Geniale Dilletanten – which roughly translates as “ingenious dilettantes” – who sought to democratize cultural productions beyond the grip of both Western capitalism and GDR socialism. The Geniale Dilletanten became synonymous with a free-for-all approach to music, film, painting and performance where participants encouraged raw expression through provocation and experimentation. Wolfgang Müller and Nikolaus Utermöhlen founded Die Tödliche Doris in 1980, presenting the public persona of Doris as a constantly shifting entity that deliberately engaged the contradictions of the human condition. The band often referenced themselves in the third person singular, alluding to Doris as a fully-formed female character with explosive, colorful emotions.
In the hybrid publishing edition Die Tödliche Doris - Elektrofotografie can be found copies of all posters, flyers and handbills of the Deadly Doris and a button produced from 1980 to 1988 electrophotographically. A supplementary booklet with detailed explanations will be published. Band founder Wolfgang Müller portrays the background of the posters and other objects. Content: booklet, portfolio with posters (one of them by Wolfgang Müller, handcoloured) as well as a button. Signed and numbered.
