Catalogue published to accompany the exhibition 'connect: Phnom Penh: Rescue Archaeology: Contemporary Art and Urban Change in Cambodia' at the ifa galleries in Berlin and Stuttgart in 2013. This is the fifth exhibition in the series connect.

'In "Phnom Penh: Rescue Archaeology" the ifa gallery presents for the first time in Europe artists from Cambodia who engage in capturing and archiving the transforming city in their collages, photographs, sculptures, installations and performances.

Until today, the architectonic image of Phnom Penh is characterised by the designs of Cambodian architect Vann Molyvann, a student of Le Corbusier in Paris. In the wake of the rapid urbanisation and modern development, his buildings are threatened with demolition. At the same time, many of the city’s inhabitants are evicted as lakes are being infilled in order to create new building sites. The chequered history of the country, the transformations in the cityscape of Phnom Penh as well as the implied social changes are omnipresent and impact the artists and their production.' - from publisher's website

Includes interviews with the artists by various art professionals and curators. With biographies of artists and authors.
