Biography:

1972 Louis Fleischauer was born and raised in Leipzig. In Eastern Germany being different was not acceptable, thus Louis had frequently to deal with harassment by the authorities, including the “Stasi”. After the Fall of the Wall he moved to Berlin into a squad (occupied house) and started working with leather and experimenting with sounds and Body Art Rituals. Witnessing some intense riots in Berlin in 1991 planted a seed for the energy Louis creates now with his performance project.

In 1993 he moved to the US.
