HEFT (Ina Römling, Torben Körschkes)
HEFT was initiated by Ina Römling and Torben Körschkes in March 2016 as a project space for reflections and debates addressing the city. We organize and curate readings, discussions, exhibitions, screenings and music events, all orbiting questions of the urban. HEFT also built up a collection of independent magazines and zines from very diverse authors from around the world. These magazines come together in a dynamic and growing archive and should be understood as working material.
