Karl Felix, photographer and creative director born in Germany, works at the intersection of fashion and fine art. His work is informed by his studies of social structure, digital innovations and the rise of surveillance, which contrasts with his devotion to nature.

The projects take place at an artificial setting, where interactions between groups and fictional characters arise, as well as attempting to disrupt heteronormative ideals outside the art and fashion industries.

PlanSpiel picks up on renewed neo-feudalising tendencies in contemporary society, a world marked by greater concentration of wealth and property, reduced upward mobility, demographic stagnation, and increased dogmatism. Medieval Modernity essentially involves living like medieval peasants with iPhones at their disposal.

PlanSpiel is a game of human chess that rolls out a strategic play of knights and queens, pawns and bishops; plotting and confrontation, false moves and checkmates—Who gets played?
