Crowdfunding for Sanatorium Dźwięku 2018 – Support the festival this year and become a Patron of Sound Art!




Dear Sanatorium Dźwięku and Art Lovers,

We are Contemporary Art Foundation In Situ established 14 years ago. For 10 years we have been creating a place for culture in Sokołowsko in Lower Silesia. We create a space for realisation of artistic projects, various and interdisciplinary creative activities, for confronting opinions and exchanging thoughts and experience as well as popularisation of innovative artistic approach. At the same time, the Foundation’s aim is promoting activity in the field of protection of cultural goods and art as well as national heritage. We organise a few festivals (Contexts – International Festival of Ephemeral Art, Hommage à Kieślowski and Sanatorium Dźwięku) and for the entire duration of the year we run an artistic residence centre.

Every year in August, continuously for 5 years, we invite artists and recipients to create Sanatorium Dźwięku festival together. In Sokołowsko, we meet listeners during concerts that cannot be seen or heard anywhere else. We seek contexts and unobvious places, where the audience comes into contact with music. Unfortunately, this year Sanatorium Dźwięku festival did not receive funding from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and other places we have applied to. Without this support we are unable to create a festival in the form that would satisfy all its’ participants. We cannot imagine a situation where the festival does not take place! We cannot accept its the discontinuity! That is why we would like to ask you for help! We are counting on your participation and support and that together we will be able to create the 5th edition of sanatorium Dźwięku. We hope that thanks to you we will meet on this one of a kind sound camp filled with concerts, sound installations, site-specific activities, lectures, exhibitions and surprises especially prepared by artists from all over the world.


Sanatorium Dźwięku is a festival devoted to experimental contemporary music and broadly understood sound art. Its main aim is to present possibly the widest spectre of phenomena related to the development of musical forms in 20th and 21st centuries. So far we presented realisations of about 120 artists from all over the world. Many of them were created especially for the context of the place during artistic residencies in Sokołowsko.

Sanatorium Dźwięku Festival does not only include concerts but also an array of realisations from the border of sound art, performance and projects created and dedicated especially to this event by musicians, composers and interdisciplinary artists. The festival takes place in a few places in Sokołowsko (Movie theatre Zdrowie, Multimedia Hall, Spring Park or the ruins of 19th century sanatorium). Every year, our festival gathers over 400 listeners from all over the world; our audience are very unique music lovers. The festival is directed by Zuzanna Fogtt and Gerard Lebik in cooperation with Michał Libera. Daniel Muzyczuk, Jan Topolski, Daniel Brożek and Paweł Szroniak are involved in the events surrounding the festival. Invaluable help for us with the organisation of the festival are professionals in various fields (sound engineers, sound system operators, filmmakers, operators, photographers and others), translators, volunteers and many more.
