Young Cambodian artists confront painful Khmer Rouge past

Forty years after the Khmer Rouge seized power in Cambodia, ruling from 1975 to 1979, the country is still recovering from the genocide they perpetrated and the decades of conflict that followed. In recent years it has enjoyed fast but uneven development, powered by a youthful population, half of which is under 25. (…) Galleries have opened in the big cities – Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Battambang – but emerging artists have also had shows in New York, Brisbane and Paris. Some are showing their work as part of the Renaissance Lille 3000 festival.
