Martijn Engelbregt was born in The Hague in 1972 and raised in Waarland. The first word he uttered was ‘strange’. In 2014 he founded Circus Engelbregt, a deregulating network organization aimed at enhancing global social sustainability. Circus Engelbregts initiates and designs (art) projects situated on the border of seemingly incompatible sectors and is not afraid to go against the grain. It has little faith in the corroded system of our society with its inherent stereotyping and seeks to confront conventional viewpoints. Engelbregt gained international renown with the Tegenscript (Anti-script), a means to combat telemarketers.
