By analogy with the fast development of the internet and its incarnations, Sacco sets out that there was a pre-industrial Culture 1.0 that evolved over a long period of time and reigned for several centuries. The industrial revolution turned it step by step into Culture 2.0. With the digital revolution and the invention of the internet it gradually grew into Culture 3.0.

What does that mean for Culture today? How does the policy framework of an integrating Europe react to this?
LABKULTUR.TV features Sacco’s study in a small series of articles.
