This issue of SAJ titled Contemporary aesthetic research: Mapping contemporary regional discourse is published on the occasion of the Belgrade 21st International Congress of Aesthetics 2019 and in order to promote ideas and concepts of the future Congress: 21st ICA : Belgrade: Possible Worlds of Contemporary Aesthetics: Aesthetics Between History, Geography and Media (July 22-26, 2019).

This issue is result of the mapping regional (Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Hungary) contemporary Aesthetics. We are presenting texts created in the context of contemporary aesthetics, aesthetics of architecture, philosophy of art, art history, art and political theory and cultural studeis. The title of the congress and title of this issue point to the view that in today’s world there is more than one “world image of aesthetics”.

In professional and cultural terms, aesthetics is today a hybrid domain involving various local and global traditions, disciplines, view points, and their geographic histories. In disciplinary terms, contemporary aesthetics, like a sort of intelligibility umbrella, covers philosophical aesthetics, various kinds of applied aesthetics, the aesthetics of architecture, design, new/digital media, music, film, visual arts, theatre, performance, as well as various kinds of cultural aesthetics: the aesthetic of everyday, of mass culture, popular culture, feminism and gender, that is, of various forms of life.
