Katalin Ladik (born 1942 in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia, now Serbia) is a poet, performer, and actress. Influenced by a multi-ethnic, multilingual environment, she works with lyrical texts as well as sound poems, visual poetry, experimental music, and radio plays. As a performer, her range also extends to happenings and theater plays. The astonishingly rich frequency spectrum in her vocal performances has earned Ladik the reputation of a »Yoko Ono of the Balkans«.
Her artistic work has received numerous awards, most recently the Klára Herczeg Prize in 2015 and the Artisjus Literature Prize in 2017. She is a regular guest at international festivals and took part in documenta 14 in 2017. She lives alternately in Novi Sad, Budapest and on the island of Hvar (Croatia).
