The Archive Books bookstore at HKW draws inspiration from the souq—that is, the heart of a city, a place of gathering, interaction, and intervention—and reimagines the library as a collaborative place for nurturing radical imagination and resistance. 

Visitors are invited to delve into literacies that question hegemonic worldviews and resist rigid categorizations. They are also encouraged to experiment with multisensorial exchanges through books, records, textiles, and poems to confront the ongoing neocolonial and patriarchal aspects of our current society.

Opening hours: 

Wed.–Mon. 12:00–19:00
