MUSEUM OF NOW
INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART ▪️ ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE ▪️ MUSEUM COLLECTION ▪️ CULTURAL EXCHANGE ▪️ GLOBAL COLLECTORS PLATFORM
Museum of Now is home to a cutting edge collection and the first travelling house exploring trends in contemporary art worldwide.
As a travelling museum MON is constantly on the move - from place to place, understanding cities and working with communities, following its curiosities, discovering and stumbling upon things and real time recording vibrations, amplitudes and trends in contemporary art.
MON IS NOT A WHITE CUBE. MON IS A BLACK BOX OF THE ART WORLD.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR BODIES CAN NO LONGER COME TOGETHER?
MON goes digital NOW
We are announcing an open call for your artistic answers to the question what happens if our bodies can no longer be together?
MON is setting up a digital platform on which all the selected works will be displayed for the time being of the Coronavirus going around.
In this extraordinary time, it is our most important concern not to let art and cultural life come to a standstill. We are therefore developing a digital platform in which we want to show your work along with video streamings and real-time communication with the audience and each other. We want to work together on the question of what happens when our bodies can no longer come together.
We will keep the Distant Bodies project running as long as the current virus outbreak is preventing us from physical proximity. We are not setting up a specific deadline. Rather, we will be accepting and displaying the submitted works continuously.
We can adapt to the new situation, grow together and continue contributing to the most important thing in times of crisis: culture

Our 2019 autumn artist residence was awarded to the Kazakh artist Pasha Cas. Starting with the MON exhibition in which Cas presented two live performances, the artist also realized a series of further interventions in urban space across Berlin. You can read about the results of his 100-day artist residence in a book, which will be published in spring 2020 under the title "Pasha Cas, Berlincore. Five Interventions on Limits of the Visible".
The works selected for the permanent collection of Museum of Now are highlights of our individual editions debating the contemporary politics, economics, gender and ethnicity. The growing collection is set up as a reflection of contemporary artistic practices around the world and currently includes approximately 80 works drawn from the museum´s curatorial activities. The MON collection features a variety of approaches to art-making and follows the unique chronology of the museum´s journey.
The Museum of Now publications are an integral part of the Museum’s mission. MON publications exemplify the scholarship of the Museum’s staff, associates and collaborating artists, and serve as a valuable resource to visitors, collectors, scholars, students, and art lovers alike.
MON is committed to advancing new ideas about artists and artworks, and pushing the boundaries of museum practice. Working directly with artists, we seek out innovative approaches to the exhibition, conservation, and interpretation of our collection. From the intersection of art and technology to the depth of a single artist’s work, the MON publication program plays a key role in our efforts to present the art of the NOW.
