Lise Bjørne Linnert's works are conceptual and process based, often anchored in the political and social. Collaboration and dialogue is important in her projects, with material collected over a periode of several years. The projects are presented as mulitfaceted installations.

Since 2006, Linnert has worked on the project Desconocida/Unknown/Ukjent.The names of the many women who are murdered or simply vanished in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico are embroidered on small patches, presented together in a monumental installation - a memorial of the victims. The pathes are embroidered by participants in Linnert's workshops worldwide.

Linnert has been exhibiting her works in institutions such as Women Museum in Mexico City, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Mexico City, Juarez Contemporary in Ciudad Juarez, The Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston and Charlottenborg Kunsthal in Copenhagen.
