” MOMEM won’t be a Museum. No museum in a classical sense, It’s a place in the here and now. An experience raising awareness for various electronic aspects of life: Sound, fashion, instruments, apps, club culture, spaces, medial surroundings, interaction. We will present the development of electronic music since the late 70s with all its genres and sub-genres, key cities that played a key role and those who have witnessed the rise of specific sounds.
We do not want to create a mere retrospective, we want to create a place steeped in this describing current and future movements. But what we want to highlight is more than a musical movement, places and clubs, this is a range of creative fields that have inspired, influenced and changed from that club culture. ” – Alex Azary
In addition to exhibitions, the MOMEM should obviously welcome DJs and musical performance, as indicated in the map above will highlight the technological instruments that played a key role in the evolution of electronic music. You can support the project by clicking here.
