Through the world exhibitions, the visual artist Ives Maes creates an image of the world's greatest expectations for the future: sometimes fulfilled with flying colours, but often not. That is what makes Cosmorama a fascinating journey from 19th century London to contemporary Shanghai.

Ives Maes photographs the heritage of the world exhibitions. And he records the architectural remains of these short events and their building sites. These images show an ironic contrast between the utopian expectations of the future and today's urban reality.
