CTM Festival Berlin 2019
20th Anniversary Edition
CTM has always strived to provide a forum that facilitates exchange and networking between different creative communities, while simultaneously fostering open spaces of possibility. Every year it reflects on the contemporary social, cultural, and political climate. This edition’s theme of Persistence examines the aesthetic and societal potentials and pains of perseverance, and of its opposite – the transient and the provisional. It’s not only a fitting allegory for our 20th birthday, but also describes an attempt to consider what is worth being persistent about, and how.
Here’s a programme overview to help you navigate the expansive 2019 edition.
