FRONT OFFICE RESIDENCY #1: Positionen – Texte zur aktuellen Musik
Positionen magazine has been around since 1988 and since its founding by Gisela Nauck was still based in East Germany, Leipzig and from 1990 in Berlin. Summer 2022, the magazine has now moved to Munich with one of the two editors Bastian Zimmermann and has a new home. Together with Andreas Engström, the magazine publishes quarterly in German on discursive topics in the field of contemporary music and related arts - with an author base of about 30 authors. Some of them are based in Munich...

From May 4-24, the magazine Positionen - Texte zur aktuellen Musik will be located at Lothringer 13 lokal. During the day, a coworking situation with the editors and authors as well as friends of the magazine will be created there. We are happy about every interested guest. Every noon from May 8 – 19, the team also invites you to a listening session of about 30 minutes. On May 20, we will celebrate the release of the May issue #135 together with some musciacts like Dawn Phase (Laura M. Ramsey & Kalas Liebfried) and students of the Sound Art program at HMTM. Also present will be the magazine 20seconds, with whom positions have cooperated for the May issue.On the evening of May 12, pianist Masako Ohta will perform together with percussionist Naoto Yamagishi. Noon on May 18 belongs to sound artists Till Bovermann and Katharina Hauke
