Culture is a Verb
by Kathrin Böhm

Inaugural artist Kathrin Böhm has collaboratively developed a concept for the ground floor of our building. Her work Culture is a Verb equips the building for public discussion about local culture.

Böhm’s design proposes different functions for each room, to find out, mix & publish what’s happening culturally in Lincoln. The building remains the same, but the content changes.
