Lecklin’s ongoing project ‘Story Café’ is a pop-up café which has happened all across Europe in which the visitors get a cup of coffee if they tell a story, which Lecklin films. A selection of the recorded stories are shown in the subsequent versions of ‘Story Café’. She has also made dramatized short films from of some of the stories. The piece can be shown as a separate video installation too.
