Why Meta House is special ?

META HOUSE was established in January 2007 in the capital Phnom Penh, south of Wat Botum Pagoda. German journalist/filmmaker Nico Mesterharm and his team aimed to contribute to the revival of the Cambodian art and film scene after decades of turmoil. In June 2010 the project makers opened a new facility: META HOUSE: CAMBODIAN GERMAN CULTURAL CENTER is a joint project of the local NGO “Karuna”, the German Goethe Institut and the “Art Plus Foundation”.

Set on more than 500 square meter the newly built center accommodates a large art gallery, a rooftop cinema and the restaurant “Art Café”. META HOUSE: CAMBODIAN GERMAN CULTURAL CENTER also hosts dance, theatre and music events, as well as providing space for meaningful public events where NGOs are invited to conduct workshops and seminars.


What to explore at Meta House?


Boasting more than 200 square meters of art exhibition space, the three storey META HOUSE gallery in Phnom Penh/Cambodia offers an excellent space for artists-in-residence and visiting artists to interact. The kingdom's first art/media/communication center promotes the development of contemporary art in Cambodia through local and international exhibitions, workshops, community-based projects, artist exchange programs and by fostering links with South East Asian and international universities, galleries, curators, non-governmental and governmental organizations.

The Media Lounge on the top floor of Meta House is equipped with video screens and monitors, on which simultaneous screenings of a wide range of documentaries, feature films and video art can be observed (Tuesdays to Sundays, screenings start from 7PM, no cover charge). This floor also offers an environment for conversation, an interactive and international meeting of minds, as well as an atmosphere for romance, where one can watch a storm roll in or the stars in a moonlit sky. Please check our monthly program, join us and experience for yourself our interspatial and intercontinental work-in-progress…
