We chose Karolina Mełnicka and we are sorry for the late announcement. 

Expanding the boundaries of what is commonly perceived as performance MeetFactory A-i-R offers a residency dedicated to SAUNA. In the cold days of late autumn of 2023, we would like to work with artists whose project is going to circulate around the topic of wellness and well-being spotted at places sucha as steam chamber, banya, or natural sauna hut. Exploring the cultural and political background of sweating we are open to artists who treat the sauna as a stage for performance, sight for rituals, or safe space for healing procedures. Feel free to apply with projects that are going to examine the sauna phenomenon critically - as long as you will be willing to practice the sauna yourself and allow others to participate. After all, this is the best way to reach altered states of mind by simply using heat. Sweat up!
