A museum dedicated to electronic music is set to open in Frankfurt, Germany.
Dubbed the Museum of Modern Electronic Music (MOMEM), the space is scheduled to open in 2017. The museum will be situated inside the city’s Children’s Museum and will be self-funded.
The project was launched and helmed by local DJ and club owner, Andreas Tomalla. Tomalla, who goes by the moniker Talla 2XLC, opened Frankfurt’s first dance venue, Technoclub, in 1984.
The Museum of Modern Electronic Music will offer interactive exhibitions, DJ workshops and live events.
The MOMEM website reads: “The MOMEM is not a museum. No museum in the classical sense. It is a place in the here and now. An experience which sensitizes for many electronic aspects of life: sound, fashion, apps, club culture, interaction.” It also describes the museum as a “journey from the beginnings, about today and into the future”.
A membership club for the MOMEM has been set up, allowing pledgers to help mould the venue. They say: “Early Bird members are supporters who are willing to support the MOMEM already before the opening. As a member you actively support the implementation of this vision and thus do with the money an important contribution both to the scene, as well as to promote culture.”
