The MOMAS (Museum of Modern Art Syros) of Martin Kippenberger (1953–1997) was created in 1993 and existed until 1996 in an unfinished, abandoned building on the island of Syros in the Cyclades, Greece. This museum was “founded” when Kippenberger, invited there by his friend Michel Würthle, spotted by the sea the skeleton of a piece of concrete architecture. He turned it into an institution with neither walls nor collections—a non-museum. The self-proclaimed director of a self-founded site, Kippenberger invited artists to make propositions for the MOMAS which was more of a museum of projects than a museum of works.
