In the course of the decision-making process for the venue of the FIFA World Cup 2022, Katar found itself in the spotlight of the press. Meanwhile, severe allegations were brought up, concerning the sale of soccer in a corrupt FIFA and the poor working conditions at the WM stadiums’ construction sites. The small emirate is often praised as one of the richest countries in the world, which is currently attempting to distance itself in the long run from its dependency on gas and oil incomes by investing into foreign companies. In his photographic documentary, photographer Felix Kleyman travels to the peninsula on the Persian Gulf and explores the discrepancy between tradition and presence, as well as between foreign workers and locals.
