Cambodian culture experienced a deep and devastating blow during the terrible years of the Khmer Rouge regime. Performing arts were banned and artists, artisans, dancers and musicians were targeted. To contribute to the revival of the Cambodian art and film scene, Cambodia’s first independent cultural centre, Meta House was established in January 2007 in the capital Phnom Penh. It actively supports Cambodian artists and students to promote the development of contemporary arts and media, through local and international exhibitions, regular film screenings, workshops, community-based projects, artist exchange programs and by fostering links with galleries, curators, non-governmental/governmental organizations, as well as South-East Asian and international universities. It also hosts dance, theatre and music events, and provides space for meaningful public events, workshops and seminars by national and international NGOs. The international NGO “Cambodian-German Cultural Association” (KDKG e.V.) is the umbrella organization of Meta House.
