María Cañas (Sevilla, 1972)

María Cañas“Virgin Terrorist of Archives, arsonist of minds and videopath, audiovisual, wild and mediatic iconoclast…”, is how she defines herself in her biography, María Cañas practices a videoguerrilla that she introduces into the topics and genres to make them explode.  Her façade is “laughing presence”: humour in all shades and the actions of the masses connected like an insurgence strategy or, at least, spiritual survival. She directs Animalario TV Producciones, a creative space devoted to the recycling culture, artistic appropriationism and experimentation. A staunch supporter of non-privatisation and the liberalisation of our historic and imaginary memory and an activist committed to archives as the tool for cultural development. She has exhibited her work at national and international festivals, fairs, events, art centres, museums and galleries and has won numerous awards.
