Kiosk K67: System for Urban Imagination Opening
Thursday, January 26, 2023
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Designed in 1966 by Sasa Machtig, K-67 kiosks were a central part of Yugoslavian daily life, serving as newspaper stands, coffee shops, flower shops, post offices, and more. The kiosks were neutral and accepting, in contrast to the brutalist architecture and forced ideology of Yugoslavia at the time.
Most of the 7500 pieces produced until 1999 were destroyed in the war, and the remaining kiosks are in poor condition. Interior architecture professor Dijana Handanovic has journeyed to find four kiosks and restored three.
This installation of a restored K-67 Kiosk is on display at Blaffer Art Museum until March 12, hosting multiple temporary art exhibits.
