The monograph entitled “Performing Cultures” is a part of proceedings of 19th International Congress of Aesthetics which was held in Cracow, Poland in July of 2013. The meeting’s theme, “Aesthetics in Action”, provoked a fruitful debate on practical aspects of the discipline, which allowed researchers coming from different countries and cultural backgrounds to indicate and analyze areas where aesthetics applies to daily life actions. The volume contains analyses of aesthetic practices at their roots, coming from different cultural backgrounds. It covers: everyday aesthetics and interculture studies, architecture and urban studies, body and self fashioning researches as well as media and technological researches.
