In the past three decades, Electronic Music has not only brought into life a club scene that constantly reinvents itself, but has also influenced music in general, as well as art, design, fashion and technology.
MOMEM will be a place to explore, conserve and relive the historical dimensions and influences of Electronic Music. A journey from the beginning to the future. A place of continuous movement and transformation, turning from museum into stage into bar into academy. A reactive environment in the heart of Frankfurt. A museum not for visitors but for guests.
MOMEM is a project of Friends of MOMEM e.V., founded by Alexander Azary and Talla 2XLC. Active in the scene for decades, their aim is to make the backgrounds of Electronic Music accessible to everyone.
In seven sections, MOMEM will address the places, the social settings, the instruments, and the various influences of Electronic Music on art, fashion and technology, as well as its numerous genres and sub genres – from Ambient, Electronica and Experimental to House and its different types, to Techno and even Drum’n’Bass.
Regular readings, panels, movie nights, concerts and club nights will round up the program, making MOMEM a place for development in the here and now.
An interactive world map will provide information about the roles of the different continents, as well as about iconic events such as Sonar, ADE or Burning Man.
Frankfurt is one of the birthplaces of European Electronic Music. In the home town of legendary clubs like Dorian Gray, OMEN, Cocoon, U60311, Monza and XS, MOMEM revives a part of local history. With institutions like Robert Johnson and a number of temporary events, MOMEM makes Frankfurt push the movement further towards future. As a museum, it closes one of the last gaps in Frankfurt’s rich cultural scene.
Seeing the potential of the project, the city of Frankfurt has already supported MOMEM in taking its first important step, providing free lease in an amazing location with 1,000 square meters of exhibition space right in Frankfurt’s inner center. The city of Frankfurt will further support us by renewing the mezzanine level of Hauptwache,turning it Into a greened up city park oasis.
The construction work will start at the end of 2017. We will further use your donation to acquire exhibits and state-of-the-art technology and to realize an interactive exhibition design as well as an infrastructure for the event program.
This is how it works: Choose your donation amount from 5 € upwards, fill in the form, upload a profile picture, and submit your donation. You will be forwarded to our donation accounts.
A large scale INFINITY DISC featuring the pictures of all supporters will be installed at the entrance of the museum. Become part of it now!
