Lise Bjørne Linnert / Norway
Lise is a visual artist. Her passion is to use her art practice to communicate social and political issues to raise awareness, and inspire reflections and actions. In 2006, she initiated Desconocida Unknown Ukjent, an ongoing international mass collaboration, embroidering nametags to protest the continuing murder of women in Cd. Juárez, Mexico and in remembrance of similar crimes worldwide.
Lise is one of the initiators and founder of NI EN MORE. Her longstanding collaboration with Juárez through Desconocida, has created bonds and trust between the international and local team and community in Juárez. Lise is following up on all different aspects of the project, in addition to finding pro-bono collaborators and raising funds.
