With Liminal, CTM 2020 attempts to reflect on music as a space and catalyst for transformation. The festival proposes multiple entry points into its theme by bringing together unique productions, club nights, transformative musical experiences, a daytime programme of talks and workshops, a hacklab, an exhibition and more. › Confirmed artists and projects for CTM 2020 3Ddancer (Alex the Fairy, Rachel Lyn, Volruptus) [INT] A.Fruit [RU] Afrodeutsche – “Amt der Seele” [UK] Akua [US] Alexmalism [HK] The Allegorist [HU/DE] Andrea Belfi [IT/DE] Andy Stott [UK] Animals of Distinction, Fly Pan Am & United Visual Artists – “Frontera” [CA] Antoine Chessex – “Resounding” [CH] Aquarian [CA/DE] Ashley Fure – “Hive Rise” [US] ASJ [HK] ASTRID GNOSIS [UK] ava* [DE] AYA [UK] Bbymutha [US] Bora [FR/DE] Born In Flamez [DE] Borokov Borokov [BE] Catu Diosis [UG] Cera Khin b2b Lokier [INT] Charlotte Bendiks [NO/DE] Dan Deacon [US] Dani Gal & Ghazi Barakat – "Altered State Solution" [INT] Deathprod [NO] Debmaster & MC Yallah [UG] Demystification Committee [INT] Dis Fig [US/DE] DJ Diaki [UG] DJ Plead [AU/DE] DJ Scotch Egg & Khanja & MC Yallah [INT] Dj-Firmeza [PT] Don Zilla [UG] Dorine Mokha ART & Elia Rediger – “Hercules of Lubumbashi” [CH/CD] Duma [KE] Emptyset [UK/DE] Floyd Lavine b2b MINCO [ZA/DE] FOTAN LAIKI [HK] Frédéric Gies & Fiedel – “Dance is Ancient” [SE/DE] Gabber Modus Operandi ft wahono x Nakibembe Xylophone Troupe [ID/UG] Ghettoraid Squad [IE/DE] Giant Swan [UK] Grinderteeth [NO/DE] Guedra Guedra - كدرة كدرة [MA] happy new tears [NL/DE] Henry Wu [UK] Hibotep [SO/UG] Hildur Gudnadóttir presents “Chernobyl” feat.

Whether through carrying memory, embodying change, or catalysing affects, spaces—be they physical, social, or ideological—command multiple means of engagement. › Discourse Programme The first glimpse of the wide-ranging CTM 2020 discourse programme reflects on music and culture as liminal spaces in which to grapple with ambiguity and uncertainty. A wide range of talks and lectures considers these processes, hoping to better understand their societal implications and how they might be used to produce and support open, pluralistic communities. › MusicMakers Hacklab 2020 “Shapeshifters” The MusicMakers Hacklab led this year by Peter Kirn of CDM and Tad Ermitano, will focus on how performance practice and invention can change the performer–making them someone or something else, making them newly visible, or making them entirely invisible. Under the title, Shapeshifters, the Hacklab will challenge participants to engage in collaborations that remake their onstage roles. › Research Networking Day The Research Networking Day (RND) is an exchange platform for students and researchers from different European graduate and postgraduate programmes traversing the fields of audio, arts, media, design, and related theoretical disciplines. https://www.ctm-festival.de/festival-2020/transfer/research-networking-day/ › Installations A special co-commission this year, the festival hosts a spatial sound installation by Maria Thereza Alves & Lucrecia Dalt which will be on show in the tropical greenhouse of Berlin’s Botanic Garden. CTM has also partnered with Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin to feature the ongoing installation “Bergama Stereo” by Cevdet Erek. › Venues CTM runs across Berlin venues including new partners Silent Green's Betonhalle, radialsystem, and the Botanic Garden Berlin, and longtime partners Berghain / Panorama Bar, HAU Hebbel am Ufer, SchwuZ, Griessmuehle, Paloma and Kunstquartier Bethanien. › transmediale and Vorspiel CTM Festival will take place parallel to and in collaboration with transmediale - festival for art and digital culture berlin. In the weeks before the two festivals, the Vorspiel programme features a city-wide programme created by Berlin-based initiatives and collectives.
