LNISB has curated and presented work at 48 Stunden Neukölln every year since 2014, with the exhibitions NeuSes, Voiced Over, For Sale, Hidden Stories and Hearing Now.
We are back in 2019 with our new group show Stories From Our Future’s Past!!!
What would it be like to interview / hear / see the ego in the future? How can we celebrate the traces of the past in the present and at the same time look at it critically? Can storytelling for and from the future be beneficial? Would it close a gap, fulfill a wish, stir up hopes?
Late Nights In Squat Bars use existing and non-existing future technologies to playfully reproduce nonlinear future stories through sound and music.
We are presenting a brand new sound installation, premiering it at 48 Stunden Neukölln!
Stories From Our Future’s Past explores the theme of this year’s festival: Future III. These songs, sound pieces and conversations are set in a future time, looking back on a past that has already taken place: Robots and technology! Played on an anachronistic device called a compact disc player, these tracks may sometimes skip or not play, symbolic of past artworks lost by the decay of old technologies. The listener may press the play/pause, back, next and stop buttons at any time.
Plus: We are thrilled to be sharing this group show with Felicia Scheuerecker, who will tell you stories with her analogue b&w portrait photography and Florence Freitag will present a performance piece in collaboration with Lisa Stewart, telling you about future bodies, images and sounds.

HIDDEN STORIES 2017
LNISB was back at 48 Stunden Neukölln for the 4th year in a row!
This year’s festival theme was “Schatten” and LNISB explored some of Neukölln’s “Hidden Stories”.
June 23 & 24, 2017
At O.T. Projektraum, Weichselstr 55, 12045 Neukölln
Feminist artists from various fields present under-represented and lesser known voices. The margins contain realities and bodies that rarely come to light, that are rarely heard above the noise of the dominant forces in our society. But now we are fighting back and taking back the light. With sound, drawings, live performances and singing.
With Late Nights In Squat Bars, Rosanna Lovell, Mary Beth Volker, Zara Verity Morris & Dafne Narvaez Berlfein.
Art & installations:
Zara Verity Morris – The Devil in the Shape of a Woman. A book of quotes reflecting on women’s roles in protest. (Comic, 2017)
Late Nights In Squat Bars – Shanti Suki & Dafne Della Dafne create a sound installation with objects which reveal hidden stories about women* in Neukölln, 2017.
Dafne Narvaez Berlfein – etwas licht (für Higui).
Schwarz 35mmm Lichtbild, Scherung. Diaprojektion auf Velourspapier, 2017.
Live performances: (9:00 pm & 10:30 pm both nights)
Mary Beth Volker – “singing songs out from obscurity: reimagined songs of dissent gegen kohle.”
Rosanna Lovell – A feminist retelling of classical western music history that considers themes such as fake news, the telling of history and the creation of a canon and how these impact on current practices and knowledges (live performance).
Plus a cappella songs sung by participating artists
FOR SALE 2016
LNISB hosted a group exhibition at 48 Stunden Neukölln for the third year in a row!
LNISB invited seven international female sound and visual artists to contribute new works to their exhibition “FOR SALE” which took place at O.T. Projektraum, Weichselstr 55, in Neukölln on June 24th and 25th, 2016.
The theme of 48 Stunden Neukölln this year was “SATT” (enough, full, satiated…) and LNISB explored aspects of consumerism: Commodity Culture (the tendency to make everything marketable) and Culture as Commodity (using certain cultural elements to make something sellable).
Zara Verity Morris, Helin Bereket, Gelya Bogatishcheva, Mary Beth Volker, Dafne Narvaez Berlfein and Late Nights In Squat Bars.

Late Nights In Squat Bars: Buy Consume Me! In this week’s show our trusted hosts give you a good dose of everything you need to get through your consuming day. From fashion and cooking advice to traffic updates and current events, you’ll be well equipped for your consuming success!
Late Nights In Squat Bars are a performing and curating duo. FOR SALE is their 3rd group show at 48 Stunden Neukölln.
Helin Bereket: Instaglam is a project about the role of photography in one of the biggest social media platforms. It questions how the people choose to present themselves online and the motivation behind watching the semi-fictional version of other people’s lives.
Helin Bereket is an interdisciplinary artist and designer with a focus on photography, interior design and 3D design.
Zara Verity Morris: Her small comic Enough Already! folds out to reveal a series of short interlinking stories. These tales portray actual events from her life; conversations with friends or colleagues as well as chance meetings on the street. The comic’s panels take the shape of a pictorial brainstorm, and are an attempt to order the artist’s own thoughts on belonging.
Zara Verity Morris draws, paints and makes sound pieces. Previous works exhibited at 48 Stunden Neukölln include images for the interactive installation VoicedOver (2015).
Gelya Bogatishcheva: Sold Out – a short story of souls being sold to ideology told through photographic works.
Mary Beth Volker: Soul For Sale uses samples of advertisements mixed with live music on the subject of selling one’s soul.
