Künstler*innenhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt am Main
The artist house Mousonturm was established in 1988 as one oft he first independent production houses in Germany, today it has become one of its most important and successful production centers. With a site that spans more than 4000 square meters in the historically preserved tower of the former Mouson soap factory, it features a theatre room, two studio stages, a rehearsal stage and studios, artist apartments, a workshop, and is closely affiliated with the dance platform Rhine-Main of Frankfurt’s LAB, thus offering extraordinary production and performance opportunities.
In its programmatic and production work, the “artist house” Mousonturm focuses on the recurring exchange of artists, groups, and collectives belonging to the contemporary independent scene, both within and beyond Germany and Europe. The Mousonturm programme focuses on contemporary dance, performance and music. It is important to give space to developments from the so-called pop, sub- and socio-cultures.
Künstler*innenhaus Mousonturm shows films, organizes concerts, and presents installations. The team of Mousonturm also understands the city and the metropolitan region as a stage, as a space for intervention and action, which they regularly make use of, play at, and explore together with the city’s residents. Matthias Pees had been artistic director and managing director since 2013. Anna Wagner and Marcus Droß have been in charge since the 2022/23 season.
