Paul Pfeiffer: The Saints, 2009
An Paenhuysen, Ian White, Kodwo Eshun

Paul Pfeiffer's ground-breaking video and sculpture works explore the power of image culture and reflect how images are made. The centerpiece of this catalog is Pfeiffer's sound and video installation The Saints, a restaging of the legendary 1966 World Cup final between West Germany and England in London's Wembley Stadium. Pfeiffer hired 1,000 Filipinos who gathered in a movie theater in Manila, where they cheered in accompaniment to a re-staging of the 1966 match, based on original film and sound materials.

Pfeiffer (*1966 in Honolulu, Hawaii) has shown his works in many major institutions, e.g. UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
