      need to know your art history, art theory, communications theory, european and particularly italian art. 'phenomenology' clear, 'culture' contested. means here mostly painting, visual art, some writing. 'modern' back to 1400s. 'gutenberg galaxy' marshall mcluhan etc. delayed cultural reaction to technological change. psychology, structure, generational, changes i need to be more familiar with art history to critique this
