Trailer for Heino Jaeger Look Before You Kuck.

The German painter and cabaret artist Heino Jaeger was once a celebrated radio star. The radio recordings "Fragen Sie Dr. Jaeger/ Ask Dr. Jaeger" achieved cult status in the 70s. Nevertheless, this popularity seemed to "hurt" Jaeger as a painter. After ten years, he abruptly discontinued his broadcasting work and began to drink. Weight down by a trauma from World War II and characterized by anarchic madness, but far being an eccentric, arrogant artist, Heino Jaeger died in a psychiatric ward in 1997 at the early age of 59. He spent his last twelve years there as an alcoholic schizophrenic.

His paintings are very precise, ambiguous and contain a special irony. They usually depict a fundamental examination of Germany`s state of being. The images are spiteful and bizarre, and his provocative game with Nazi symbolism confused viewers – no one wanted to hang something like that in their living room.
