The modular K67 kiosk was designed by Slovenian architect Saša J. Mächtig. It was marketed from the late 1960s onwards as “the right point of meeting”. Its popularity extends across eastern and central Europe all the way to New York, where it is part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

Inscribed in cultural memory, the once ubiquitous model has become a rare sight on the streets of Prishtina. To halt the tide of dereliction and disappearance, Ilir Dalipi has restored and repurposed one of the last remaining kiosks in town. Influenced by tactical urbanism, which proposes swift and small-scale solutions to larger problems, the architect and urbanist seeks to inspire others to follow his example.

During Manifesta 14 Prishtina, the K67 will host Radio International, an intervention by sound artist Susan Philipsz in collaboration with a collective of students from Kosovo and abroad. Later on, Dalipi intends for the kiosk to become a museum for other everyday design objects, similarly rescued from oblivion.
