Suburbia: Building the American Dream is an immersion into the concept of the idyllic home and its construction through popular culture and the entertainment industry. From the suburbs of the 19th century to the suburban sprawl of the 1950s, the exhibition offers an in-depth look at the social, political, and economic context that has fueled this phenomenon in the United States and beyond.

Addressing the contradictions of an urban model marked by segregation and unsustainability, the exhibition reflects on the impact of the suburban dream today, especially in cities such as Barcelona and Madrid. Through a rich variety of visual and cultural materials, from photographs and films to artworks and everyday objects, it invites us to question the value of the city and public space in our era.

The exhibition presents the work of leading artists and creators, offering critical perspectives on the famed American way of life. In addition, Filmin's Filmin's Suburbia channel channel complements the experience with a selection of related films, further expanding the dialogue on this theme. Suburbia: Building the American Dream is a unique opportunity to reflect on the cultural and urban aspirations that shape our lives.
