Krista Jantowski

Krista Jantowski runs WALTER books, which you could call a bookshop (but it's trying to be a library). With a background in filmstudies (but in no way bound to this medium), Krista worked for some institutions (rather not to be named) as an organizer of public programs. In 2016 she decided to commit herself to (reading) books, turned away from institutions, moved to Arnhem and opened up WALTER books. In 2017, WALTER books 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.
