Castrum Peregrini, ‘the fortress of the pilgrim’, is the nom de guerre of a WWII safehouse in the city centre of Amsterdam.This DNA makes Castrum Peregrini and the House of Gisèle a unique place, combining a heroic past with pressing social issues. In addition, it literally provides space for creative and engaged creators who believe in working together: the co-working space. Castrum Peregrini has an unequivocal belief in a society where nobody is excluded and that embraces diversity and equality as conditions for progress.

For Ends Meet, artist Marijn Bax has investigated the archive and atelier of the renowned Dutch artist Gisèle van Waterschoot van de Gracht. During his research she stumbled upon the quotation: “Where is the frontier of like and love?” This sentence formed the inspiration for his new work, which will be exhibited by Castrum Peregrini.
