Since the 1960s, German painter and sculptor C.O. Paeffgen (born 1933) has assembled symbolically charged compositions with recurring motifs—such as moons, mice and hearts—within fruit and vegetable crates, like miniature stages. This publication focuses on this group of works.

From his youth, German artist C.O. Paeffgen was deeply attracted to print advertising and the still-young medium of television. He continues this immediate, graphic engagement with media today. Selecting key scenes from newspapers, the artist translates them to canvas or draws on the image directly. Also featured here are Paeffgen's delicate and colorful assemblages.
