MOMEM – a home for house, techno, trance and more when it opens this year
POSTED 01 Mar 2018 . BY Alice Davis
The Museum of Modern Electronic Music (MOMEM) is nearing completion in Frankfurt, Germany, and is turning up the volume on the plans with the launch of a pop-up museum this April ahead of a full launch at a later date.

The museum was conceived to tell the story of the electronic music movement and its impact on youth culture – as art, design, fashion and technology – throughout Europe from the 1980s through to the present day.

Frankfurt DJs Alex Azary and Talla 2XLC are behind the idea, and teamed up with designer Stefan Weil (Atelier Markgraph) who has come up with the concept and spatial designs. A site was found downtown when the children’s museum on Hauptwache moved locations at the end of 2016.

“It’s a museum for electronic music, where all of the various genres, subgenres and approaches to electronic music are represented,” said Azary. “It’s also supposed to show when and where which scenes developed, where a certain style was shaped.

“It’s not only about the music and music scenes, but also the other creative areas that formed around them: art, graphic design, photography, video, design, technological development, and fashion too.”

MOMEM is laid out over seven themed zones and will feature artefacts including photography, visual art and an interactive map of iconic events like Burning Man and Sonar. An educational thread will offer lectures and workshops by DJs, producers and artists, as well as cultural programming like film nights, concerts and club nights.
