Somos is honored to offer a special appearance of MOMUS (alias Nicholas Curry) as Unreliable Tour Guide through its “Algemeinplätze und Nahaufnahmen” exhibition.

Over the years, the musician, writer and performance artist has appeared regularly as “the unreliable tour guide” at venerable institutions and museums such as the Schirn Kunsthalle, the Nobel Museum and the Witney Biennale.

According to the NY Times, MOMUS’s spontaneous, absurdist and irreverent performances „intent to challenge art-world pieties and unsettle museumgoer expectations.” As there clearly cannot ever be enough of that, SomoS is pleased to share this insightful occasion.
