CTM’s 21st edition launches with an announcement of new performances, special projects, and commissioned works. Combining unique productions, concerts, and club nights with a dense daytime programme of talks, discussions, installations, and an exhibition, CTM 2020 proposes multiple entry points into thinking about this year’s Liminal theme.
As always, CTM Festival will combine first-hand experience and critical reflection in a programme housed at various Berlin venues including new partners Radialsystem V and Silent Green’s Betonhalle, while continuing its close relationship with HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berghain, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Festsaal Kreuzberg, and SchwuZ. Club events and concerts will be complemented by wide-ranging discourse and debate via daytime lectures and artist talks, a Hacklab, the CTM Exhibition, and more.
A first artist and project announcement is now out, including a new extended listening format at Berlin’s new Betonhalle venue, a massive concrete space located underneath Silent Green, which will host a live rendition of Chernobyl by Hildur Gudnadottir with Sam Slater and Chris Watson, Deathprod supporting his first album in 15 years, and a long-duration 4 part meditation on death by Jacob Kirkegaard. Kamaal Williams and Bbymutha lead the festival’s concert and club programme, which also welcomes a new live by Dis Fig, the inimitable Aya fka LOFT, Discwoman affiliate Akua, winding techno rhythms of VTSS and Zamilska, julienned drum breaks of Aquarian & more. A range of CTM festival passes are now on sale.
CTM will take place parallel to and in collaboration with transmediale – festival for art and digital culture. In the weeks before the two festivals, the Vorspiel programme will unite Berlin-based initiatives and venues in creating a city-wide programme of exhibitions, performances, artist talks and more
The next CTM 2020 programme announcement will be out in November; save the date! And in the meantime, read more by visiting the CTM 2020 Liminal sub-site.
