Expo 1967 and 1970 videos

As Donald Drumpf enters the white house and we enter deeper into the historical abyss of late-capitalism it might be worth to remember just how cheerful things seemed some 50 years ago, the 1967 Montreal World Expo and in the Osaka 1970 Expo.

World exhibitions are a genre that has kind of passed on from the world, which is a shame. In the past they were used to offer a vision of the future, and though those futures seem kind of naive today, I kind of miss those people who tried giving us a universalisitc and hopeful vision for the planet and mankind. This might be a time to revive the world Expo (there’s one scheduled to happen in Dubai in 2020).

Watch the last two minutes of the clip from the Osaka 1970 expo and you are in for a treat with all those Japanese dancers waving the flags of all the nations of the earth. Oh the camaraderie!
