Kioosk is a project aimed at presenting independent publications and promoting the idea of self-publishing. It was the first such event in Krakow, and the only such opportunity for both creators and readers for a meeting in a wide circle. In the open space of KIOOSK 1, KIOOSK Bratislava and KIOOSK 2, authors from Poland and abroad have exhibited their works. It was an extensive collection of publications rare and practically unavailable in bookstores. We managed to organize KIOOSK 2 times as an independent trade fair, and once as part of a larger trade fair in Slovakia.

The first edition of KIOOSK immediately met with great interest and enthusiasm of the design environment, which indicated the need for this type of event. The foundation of the event was its democratic character and easy accessibility for potential exhibitors.
17–18.11.2012, Konfederacka 4, Kraków
The next edition of KIOOSK tripled the number of publishers. This time there were about 60. As part of the event, there were also lectures, workshops, poster exhibition and even a banquet!
16–17.11.2013, Dom Kolejarza, Kraków
In addition to the regular sale of publications, we also organized zine workshops. The whole event was held under the slogan "luxury".
