Summary/Abstract: The article is a report from the international conference "Archives of/for the Future" which took place in Łódź in June 2015 under the patronage of NECS, and which was organised by the Centre of Media Studies and Audiovisual Culture of the Łódź university and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (SWPS). Its main topic was archives and archiving – issues particularly relevant in the age of digitisation, which radically and irreversibly changed research perspective on these issues. The several days of deliberation of scholars and artists from all over Europe and the world, the discussions, workshops and meetings with invited speakers (such as Olivier Grau or Krzysztof Wodiczko) were a testimony of democratisation of archiving, which is no longer an exclusive process available only to a group of highly specialised professionals, but a phenomenon of global culture.
