A Dutch artist, Peter Klashorst, well known for painting and photographing young women, will have an exhibition of his work on show at Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S-21) in Phnom Penh sometime this year, supported by UNESCO. I've seen both April and August mentioned, so I can't confirm either way at the moment. He visited the museum, took photos on his mobile phone and put his paintings on canvas the next day in Bangkok. He's now added more to the collection, which has no name as yet, with some of them already for sale on ebay. More when I hear it.

A story did the rounds recently that Tuol Sleng/S-21 will be renovated sometime this year. Apparently its physical infrastructure and its archive of materials will get the main attention. UNESCO will help to build two more entrances, space for parking, a garden and public toilets. Whatever happens you will still be able to find Chum Mey somewhere on the site, as long as the KR Tribunal is not in session. He's there nearly every day and is happy to chat to visitors. He's one of a handful of S-21 survivors.

Hi Andy,

The exhibitions is going to be in mid August. In the meanwhile we are looking for a place where we can exhibit recent Cambodia work by Peter. All the galleries are full so an Hotel is maybe an option.

More info please conatct
