American artist Paul Pfeiffer’s Jerusalem is a radical reworking for the digital age of the 1966 World Cup Final between England and Germany.
The 1966 match at Wembley Stadium is probably the most famous occasion in England’s sporting history. It was broadcast live by the BBC to what was at the time, the largest ever audience for a global sporting event, with an estimated 400 million people watching on their black-and-white TV sets. Pfeiffer’s project has been designed specifically to be experienced online and premieres on digital art platform The Space whilst England is competing in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
