Krista Jantowski

Co-ordinator external communication

Krista Jantowski is one of the owners of WALTER, a cooperatively run space in Arnhem, consisting of an independent bookshop and RISO print lab. With a background in filmstudies (but in no way bound to this medium), Krista took her time searching for a way to combine an interest in research with a passion for the collective and its narratives, which resulted in her work as an organizer of public debates and lectures (in universities and other odd places) for several years. In 2016 she decided to devote herself to (reading) books, turned away from institutions and opened WALTER together with graphic designer Corine van der Wal. In 2017, WALTER partnered up with DAI, which by then became a ‘roaming academy’. The affiliation entails close collaboration between WALTER and DAI on a variety of levels, from the very practical to the conceptual. Krista, most prominently, will act as DAI’s external communication co-ordinator.
