September 23, 2016… [workshops]



Dear Colleagues,

thank you very much for participating in our conference. We really appreciate your  inspiring and informative speeches and long discussions. We hope you were able to see a little bit unknown image of Lodz, neighborhoods that are not tourist revelations. But we hope too, that in two years you will be able to see the New Centre of Łódź in all its glory, which is situated next to the Institute of Philosophy… So we invite you right now!
We are going to prepare a book. We do not treat it as a conference volume. It will be – like our previous book – thematic monograph, centered around a wide ranges of Aesthetics & Urban Studies. We look forward to strictly scientific texts, as well as studies on your artistic creativity. They may include workshops’ scenarios, descriptions of activities, etc.
Please send text in English until December 15, 2016. Please find attached selected pages from our previous book and treat it as a model for the bibliography and references. Here are the basic principles of editing:
1. the main text: no more than 20,000 characters with spaces, including footnotes; 12 point Times New Roman, line spacing 1.5,
2. bibliographic references eg. (Certetau, 2008: 45),
3. footnotes: 10 points, spacing 1,
4. bibliography at the end of the article: please remember to give the full name of the author and the name of the publishing house,
5. English note about the author – not more than 1000 characters including spaces,
6. English Abstract – not more than 1000 characters including spaces,
7. brief message, that you have the right to use images that illustrate your article.

The AEC2 Programme


We are pleased to present you the AEC2 Programme. The conference will comprise six regular sessions (five in English and one two-part session in Polish) attended by artists, philosophers, aestheticians, art historians, architects, urbanists, psychologists, also one discussion panel “What Pleases an Eye in Urban Space?” and several accompanying events. Please visit our website  for more information.

The conference will take place during the festival  “City Energy 2016” organised by the Urban Forms Foundation in Lodz, so you will be able to watch the artists at work: Stormie Mills, Opiemme, Andrzej Porostu, Steve Nash (but please take into account that their work depends on the weather :-). But now you can see the first painting of this festival made in Lodz by Gaia from New York or read an interview with Australian artist  Guido Van Helten working with Urban Forms Foundation this year in Poznan and Grudziadz.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you this September in Lodz!
