Ludo Mich is a Belgian based artist rooted in the fluxus movement. Known for his holography know-how, his visual art pieces and surprising performances. Ludo Mich is a painter, sculptor, holographer, musician, performance artist and fluxus associate best known for the series of hysterical films he made in the sixties and seventies, especially: 'Lysistrata' (1975), an adaptation of Aristophanes' satirical poetic comedy into a strictly personal ludic burlesque. All actors perform naked. This was due not simply to the budget being too small to accommodate the appropriate costumes and regalia; Ludo Mich also intended to use his particularity to heighten the impact of Aristophanes' anarchistic ideas. 'Saturnus' (1971) by Ludo Mich still remains one of the topworks of the Belgian Underground Cinema of the sixties and seventies.

Ludo was born in 1945 in Antwerp. He started his career in 1961 when he began experiments with all the possible art forms: fluxus happenings, painting, electronic music, sculpting, theater, street and sound performances. Since then he has performed all over the world and released lps, cds and tapes of his many music projects and collaborations. Ludo has produced films on 8mm, 16mm, 35mm, video and digital.  He has collaborated with other artists and musicians such as Thurston Moore, Paul LaBrecque, Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson, Dennis Tyfuss, Jennifer Walshe, Blood Stereo, Wataru Kasahara, Kiyoharu Kuwayama, Burial Hex, The Joyous Cosmology, Syed Kamran Ali, Pascal Nichols, Roman Nose, Blue Yodel, Mama Bar, Kommissar Hjuler and more.
