Lise Linnert works in many media. Her relational and process-based projects have a political and social starting point. She often collaborates interdisciplinary. Humanism and human rights are the basic themes in her activist practice. She is passionate about art as a gateway to dialogue, attention, and change and invites the public to active partipation in workshops. The time span is essential, and projects can last for several years or have no end date.

In 2017, she initiated NI EN MORE, (NOT ONE MORE) in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. An international collaborative project that combines textile art, fashion, and activism. In a sewing and dyeing studio, women exposed to violence, receive training, work, and the opportunity for financial independence. In 2023, the project has grown into a non-profit organization that runs three sewing and dyeing workshops and employs 17 women.

Linnert’s work have been shown at institutions such as the Women Museum, and the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Mexico City, Juarez Contemporary in Juárez, Mexico, the Rubin Center for Contemporary Art in El Paso, The Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston, USA, Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, England, Charlottenborg Kunsthal in Copenhagen, Denmark, VISUAL Center for Contemporary Art in Carlow, Ireland, Musée Bernadotte in Pau, France, Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, Hå gamle prestegard and Gallery F15 in Norway
