LOCKWOOD presents the third episode of the documentary series "The Century of the Self" by Adam Curtis (2002, UK, 58 min.) about the growing mass consumer society during the heydays of Freud and his theories of psychoanalysis. A film about manipulation of the public by politicians and business.
The third episode, "There is a Policeman Inside All Our Heads: He Must Be Destroyed", talks about how the ideas of Edward Bernays, the founder of propaganda - now called 'public relations', based on the theories of Freud, are being re-evaluated during the 60s, and lead to the formation of the "Me" generation in the United States.

Since June 2014 THE BOOKSTORE, a community-project that houses creatives in collaboration with housing associations Ymere and Stadsgenoot, is working in the Reimerswaalbuurt in Osdorp with the project LOCKWOOD. In collaboration with Ymere the project houses 20 artists in the Schoonboomstraat and Willemskerkestraat.
LOCKWOOD houses designers, artists, writers and musicians. A group within which a continuous exchange of expertise and talent takes place. The participants of the project actively work in the neighbourhood in exchange for an affordable rent. In this light, LOCKWOOD organises various activities in two project spaces: the LOCKWOOD Projectspace and Het Reimertje. For more information about the activities visit our website or Facebookpage.
