CTM 2020 them is Liminal
The theme for CTM Festival 2020 is Liminal, transitional phases in which a familiar order sees its values and symbols destabilised, as norms are suspended or turned on their heads. CTM 2020 Liminal will attempt to reflect how music offers spaces of plurality and experimentation which could help with dealing with the uncertainties and ambiguities of our time.
The festival proposes multiple entry points into its theme by bringing together hybrid performances and challenging musical experiences. As in previous editions, the CTM Festival will run parallel with and in collaboration with Transmediale Festival. Together the two will produce a number of collaborative programmes, including Vorspiel.
