Looking Back: Momo

Growing up in a German-speaking household, the name Momo had only one meaning for me: the little girl who is the title character of Michael Ende’s landmark 1970s dystopian novel. Now I associate Momo with the artist of that name, who recently put up a mural on the Williamsburg wall last graced by Lister. Below are images from 5 years of Momo on the streets of New York. The sly, self-referential, New Yorker cover paste-up remains one of my all time favorites.
