bathroom venting

I've got an old building with no exhaust fans in the bathrooms I have windows in the showers, is there a way to vent them without electricity (as there is no power source on the shower wall) and can you exhaust bathrooms into the living area of an apartment

Sure .... either leave the windows or the bathroom door open.

However .... the purpose of an exhaust is to remove excess moisture created by showering and to remove odours created by ... well you know.

You have electricity available since you likely have a light in the bathroom ... the issue would be running the exhaust duct from a fan.

Being an apartment you may only have the open window or door unless the landlord doesn't mind creating an opening somewhere for the exhaust ducting.
