Contextualised in the Fortuny neighbourhood designed by the architects Sardà and Zaragoza, which was the first intervention of the recently created Municipal Housing Institute in Reus towards housing the working class. The neighbourhood, now integrated into the fabric of the city, was then isolated from the city centre, making the residents feel more rooted in the neighbourhood than in the city, generating a strong sense of belonging and neighbourhood unity. The project portrays the day-to-day life of the working class during the post war through the micro-stories of a family from the neighbourhood, emphasising the central role that the institution of marriage, the normative family and the good conduct played in gaining access to subsidised housing in the era of National Catholicism, which favoured models of conduct suited to its social vision.
The piece emphasises how discursive devices shape subjectivities, and at the same time, how these devices are profaned by individuals, exercising their agency in everyday, but no less political, actions.
