MUSEUM OF MODERN
ELECTRONIC MUSIC (MOMEM)
MOMEM I Germany 2016 til today
The first museum of electronic music worldwide, MOMEM will open 2019 in Frankfurt to tell the story of a culture – and to push it forward: with a programme of music, exhibitions, workshops and events, MOMEM will be a place for development in the here and now, inviting to explore electronic music and its influences on art, design, technology, fashion and lifestyle. Since 2016, we have accompanied the Friends of MOMEM e. V. as a digital partner and created the fundraising website as well as various media such as videos, Facebook content, flyer, poster, press releases or mailings.
Electronic music lives through the people who love it. On this thought we based the fundraising website donate.momem.org and made the supporters become heroes with their donations, no matter whether longtime enthusiast or newcomer. In English and German, the website guides the user through MOMEM’s idea, programme and its relation to Frankfurt; track titles and quotations of famous musicians and DJs are the red thread running through the chapters. The page closes with a call and a form for donations, honouring each supporter by providing the opportunity to upload a profile picture and a message to become a visible part of the MOMEM – prominently placed on the “Infinity Disc” in the header, a virtual vinyl that will also be part of the future exhibition. With each page load, a different supporter appears; a search function allows to find other supporters.
MOMEM - FRANKFURT:
Designed as a fundraising website, donate.momem.org has become MOMEM’s main web presence by now, uniting a worldwide fan community on the disc. Like the future museum, the website has become a place for exchange, featuring various messages – showing commitment to the project, presenting oneself as an institution or label, or to greet a friend who shares the passion for music.
