PlanSpiel for Studio Magazine
March 2021

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?
