New Geographies

CTM Magazine 2016

This 104-page publication presents critical approaches to CTM 2016's New Geographies theme in essays and articles authored by music journalists, researchers, theorists, and participating artists.

The magazine incorporates and excavates the New Geographies theme through a multiplicity of approaches, from discussions of "exotism" to the pervasive habit of of describing music through localisations, and from portraits of individual artists and networks to inspection of music's "moral geographies". The collection also features of a handful of artworks that relate to the New Geographies theme.

The CTM 2016 Magazine costs 9 € and is available in Berlin at Motto. Anyone outside Berlin can order the magazine online via the Motto Online Shop (coming soon).
