CTM Festival 2021 – Transformation


Bei Festivals geht es ebenso um Kunst und Musik wie um Austausch und Zusammengehörigkeit. Die Definitionen dazu verändern sich, vor allem als Folge der Pandemie. Unter dem Motto "Transformation" zielt das CTM 2021 auf einige der Herausforderungen, denen Kunst und Kultur in diesen Zeiten gegenüber stehen. Bleibt neben den unzähligen online Angeboten gespannt auf einige hybride Veranstaltungen in der zweiten Hälfte des Jahres.

Das sagt der/die Veranstalter:in:

If there is one thing the past year has shown, it is that the grotesque inequalities on this planet – whether social, ecological, or political – cannot be sustained. Amidst a global crisis of equity and of care, can we seize this critical opportunity in order to make some necessary changes? CTM 2021 Transformation explores music and art's functions as a laboratory for bigger questions, asking how they might take part in and build varied and necessary transformations.

As the pandemic changes our means and understanding of connection, CTM 2021 »Transformation« aims to respond to some of the challenges facing arts and culture in these exceptional times. By experimenting with formats and expanding into an online setting, CTM seeks to adapt while preserving important forms of continuity – encouraging connections, supporting ongoing artistic work, and engaging in crucial dialogues. How might music communities find ways to transform towards new, more supportive contexts and equitable existences?
The festival is concentrated around core dates of 19–31 January 2021, however be sure to check the special events preceding and spilling over after these days. CTM will also present a follow-up group of hybrid/live events in the second half of 2021.
» Tickets & Passes
All January/February 2021 events will take place online, free of charge. No festival passes are offered this year. Stay tuned for more ticket info regarding hybrid events in the second half of 2021.
The full programme for CTM 2021 Transformation – including more special projects, commissioned works, and our Discourse talk programme – will be announced in January.
