What defines a country? Is it the culture or is it the GDP? Honestly, there are no correct answers to those questions. However, if you really want to understand a nation’s people, delve into their art and culture.
If you are looking for a country to start with, go for Cambodia, especially if you are in the capital. After all, an exhibition called ‘Out of Line’ is presently underway at the Akar Prakar Contemporary, where 10 Cambodian artists are displaying an ensemble of works across styles including figurative, abstract and the unique kbach, which is a traditional Cambodian style.
