TCA Phnom Penh
The TransCuratorial Academy (TCA) is an initiative of KfW Stiftung with the aim of advancing international knowledge transfer, networking and the development of the transcultural and transdisciplinary curatorial discourse. It is directed by Beatrice von Bismarck and Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer. The academy is structured in three chapters (Berlin, Mumbai, Phnom Penh), each of which is centered on a keyword in a five-day programme.
'Untranslatability' is the keyword of the TCA Phnom Penh, which is realised in collaboration with the artist-run space Sa Sa Art Projects. By inviting Emily Apter as the keynote speaker, the TCA follows its aim to introduce vital terms from neighbouring disciplines to the curatorial discourse. Furthermore, the programme includes presentations by the participating curators, workshops with the curators Vuth Lyno and Gridthiya Gaweewong and excursions to local art institutions. Participants of the TCA Mumbai will join the programme as alumni.

Sa Sa Art Projects is a Cambodian artist-run space dedicated to experimental and critical contemporary art practices. Founded in 2010 by Stiev Selapak art collective, Sa Sa Art Projects operated from the historic White Building until 2017. At its new location, Sa Sa Art Projects has shifted toward a stronger engagement with Cambodian young artists and art graduates while continuing to build a deeper dialogue with artists within Asia through its creative education programs, exhibitions, its signature Pisaot artist residency, and other special collaborative projects.
