A project by i Collective (Betiana Bellofatto, Natalia Blanco, Jan Fischer, Lune Léoty, Valeria Schwarz)
From 25th – 27th June 2010, 48 hours non stop in the frame of 48 Stunden Neukölln.
Place: in front of Rathaus Neukölln, Karl-Marx-Str. 83, 12043 Berlin
We are happy to present STORY BOX, an installation in the public space which is the last project of i Collective e.V. for 48 Stunden Neukölln. In this occasion, i Collective develops a work in relationship with the principal characteristic of Neukölln: the coexistence of different social and ethnic groups. As an inverted Babel Tower, STORY BOX aims to join instead of disperse. Inside the cabin placed in front of the Rathaus Neukölln and during 48 hours non stop, the viewer will be able to listen to stories of different countries in different languages.
Conceived as a living monument, this project seeks to create a common identity from the difference. Each reader performs his/her own cultural background within Neukölln´s everyday life, activating associations, memories and images in the visitor only through the spoken word. On Sunday 27th between 9 and 12 am i Collective has a special program for children. We will also encourage children to participate by reading themselves stories for the adults.From 25th -27th June 2010, 48 hours non stop in the frame of 48 Stunden Neukölln, in front of the city hall / Rathaus Neukölln.
