Spanish Dream 2011 | Colectivo Cadelas Verdes

Critical reflection on the economic crisis and his consequences. In Spain, especially, this circumstance met accentuated by the famous real-estate bubble.

The idea refers to the American Dream as symbol of what longs the whole country, the final aim that it is necessary to reach in the life: to have a housing in property. This desire there legitimized a social model based on the production indiscriminate and protected by the bank speculation.

The dream did bits to itself and, as inheritance, we have a territory infected by works that stayed without ending, premature ruins that already form a part of our landscape. It alludes to emotional, recreating familiar scenes in works without finishing off.

The slightly domestic aspect of the spaces contrasts with the normality of the daily scenes provoking the reflection on a company that, dragged by the zeal to turn into owners, he forgot the real sense of to live.

The project has developed in different locations in Galicia. Nevertheless, the geographical relocation of the space is looked of conscious form, not introducing identifiable references, provided that this might happen in any part of the Spanish territory. The production of the project began in July, 2010 with a pilot experience and since then very different locations have been realized. The used means: management of permissions, furniture, actors, … come fundamentally from own resources, lendings and friends’ collaborations.
