CTM Festival 2022 – Contact

  • Hybrid 23rd edition // Part 1 » 19 January – 6 February // Part 2 » 24 – 29 May // Please note: The above listed lineup features all participating artists of CTM 2022 Part 1 and Part 2. Discover newly confirmed CTM 2022 Part Two acts via: https://www.ctm-festival.de/news/new-wave-of-ctm-2022-part-2-acts During the past three weeks we’ve collectively felt the shock of war breaking out in Ukraine, the heartbreak of witnessing increasing civilian casualties and refugees fleeing their homes, the scramble to find how each of us might be most useful in offering support, and the dissonance of keeping up with our jobs and daily lives while the war rages on just a day’s drive away from Berlin. At the same time, we continue to be motivated by the resistance of Ukrainians, and by the multitude of responses from people and communities worldwide. CTM Festival 2022 Part Two highlights our much-awaited return to immersive nights of music, and the joy of meeting old friends and new strangers on the dancefloor. Against the backdrop of the devastating war in Ukraine, which is likely to impact us for a long time, and which will call on our support and solidarity for a long time as well, we can only hope that such moments of celebration and togetherness will strengthen us and keep us striving for a kinder and more just society. » Theme One of the most important things that music and a music festival like CTM can bring about is contact – with diverse sonic worlds, communities, and experiences, but also between traditions, temporalities, geographies. As the social functions of music and festivals have been weakened, and as we grapple with a multiplicity of waves and meanings of »reopening,« CTM 2022 aims to highlight the importance of creating space for many forms of contact, and to reflect on their requirements. How can we revive, rethink, and strengthen music and its spaces of possibility for exchange and emotional resonance? Because without new and challenging forms of contact in the present, we cannot expect a more collective, just, and joyful future.
