CREATE YOUR OWN

Create your own audio program

After listening to MoMA Audio, we invite you to create your own audio program for your next visit to MoMA.

1. Find out what's on view at MoMA.
You can search the Museum's online collection—check the "works that are on view" option to select only works that are currently on view at the Museum. (Please note that this list is subject to change.) Make a list of artworks you would like to include on your audio program and download printable images from the site.

2. Find out how to record your own audio program and download it to your MP3 player.

6. Recent podcast submissions: 291 is inspired by Dada. To create 291, Jason Sneed selected quotes and excerpts from Dadaist writings. The quotes were then drawn out of a hat and matched with different sounds described in the texts, using a combination of Dada strategies that depart from rationality and are assisted by the laws of chance, intuition, and assemblage. This random arrangement will hopefully result in new meanings and non-meanings, providing an entirely new interpretive method—or nothing at all. 291 features quotes from a variety of people affiliated with Dada, including Kurt Schwitters, Marcel Duchamp, Jean Arp, Hans Richter, Margery Rex, Francis Picabia, and Hugo Ball.
