KIOSK Rotterdam. Providing goods and gadgets. Make your dealer, your healer.

In 2019 I became the janitor of Pension Almonde, a temporary home in transition to demolishment. I fixed dripping taps, broken central heating systems, clogged toilets, etc. You could find me daily at the reception, almondestraat 179, where I welcomed guests, processed payments and handed out keys. 24/7 available, as I was living above the space.

Since February, 2020 I started selling books on a voluntary basis from the reception. KIOSK was open by appointment and with fixed times on Wednesday and Thursday from 18.00 - 21.00, funded by my student debt. It started off with a personal selection and grew to a collection of titles informed by people who visited and shared their research (personal and/or academic).
