A symposium presented by SA SA BASSAC and Sa Sa Art Projects
Hosted by Bophana Audiovisual Resource Center, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Convened by Erin Gleeson, Roger Nelson, Pen Sereypagna, and Vuth Lyno.
This symposium examines Phnom Penh’s White Building. Leading local and
international researchers address the deep time of the White Building’s
layered histories; the dense space of the White Building’s architectural
forms as these have mutated over time; and the multiple voices that seek
to shape and speak of the White Building, both from within and from
Histories and experiences including of urban space, politics, law, art and
geography will be considered. Various methodologies including
architectural, artistic and activist are proposed. The symposium is
convened at a critical, urgent moment for the White Building and is
timed to coincide with architect and urbanist Pen Sereypagna’s research
residency in the White Building (hosted by Sa Sa Art Projects and
supported by Parsons The New School For Design).
