A major aim of the CTM Festival since its inception has been to make space for radical forms of musical expression and dissonant emotions. Under the title FEAR ANGER LOVE, CTM 2017 will focus explicitly on such emotions found in or through music and will examine the diverse strategies that are applied to unleash or harness them. With special projects and commissions, performances, an intensive daytime programme and an outlook that continues to search the fringes of current music geographies, CTM 2017 will examine the unhinging and emancipatory potential of resonant (musical) emotion to recurrently question and challenge the status quo.
From 27 January – 5 February 2017, CTM 2017 Fear Anger Love returns to its constellation of exciting nightlife and cultural venues in Berlin, including HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berghain, Yaam, Heimathafen Neukölln and SchwuZ.
As always, the CTM Festival will take place parallel to and in collaboration with the transmediale – Festival for Art and Digital Culture, which in 2017 will be celebrating its 30th anniversary with an extended programme and new formats.
Preceding the two festivals, the 6th edition of Vorspiel, a city-wide programme in which over 30 Berlin-based initiatives and venues invite the public to a series of exhibition openings, performances, interventions, artist talks and special events, will be launched on 20 January.
