In cooperation with CALLE LIBRE

The interdisciplinary, multicultural art project L-INKED sees itself as a continuous work-in-progress research format that invites us to reflect on how we - each shaped by our context - enter relationships, what role our bodies play in this, how we deal with love and desire. In doing so, we question gender norms and stereotypes in different cultures.
