EXPO LIO '92 (María Cañas)
L'Alternativa Parallel / Panorama / EXPO LIO '92


A critical trip back in time to the ’92 Seville Expo, which changed the face of Seville for ever. This humorous and impassioned guerrilla video explores the ways in which culture has been warped by globalisation, the clash of civilisations and the construction of a collective identity designed to encompass us all, or at least those striving to create new worlds.


María Cañas, aka the Archivist of Seville, graduated in fine art and has a PhD in Aesthetics and the History of Philosophy from the University of Seville. She is internationally acclaimed for her video frays, militant film-devouring and laughter protest as forms of popular resistance. In 2014 she had a retrospective at l’Alternativa, where she also gave a masterclass.
