World Cup '74 Portrait #203 (Georg Schwarzenbeck: West Germany)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Continuing the Project & featuring as our re-mediated subject (Hans-)Georg Schwarzenbeck, who was represented on a sticker in  the Panini ’M√ľnchen 74’  album & subsequently selected as a member of the West Germany squad for the World Cup Finals, at which he was appeared in all 7 of the hosts’ matches as they went on to win the tournament, although, unlike some of his teammates, his name did not register with me at the time of my experience of the television coverage of the event.
