In 1900, the French archaeological mission of Indochina has been rebaptised as EFEO (literally, the French School of the Far East), with one main mission being the study of all asian civilisations from India to Japan. As soon as 1907, numerous researchers have been sent to Cambodia to study and restore the fascinating archaeological site of Angkor.
For more than 60 years, architects, epigraphists and archaeologists have collected many photos, unique testimony of Cambodia throughout the 20th century. This exhibition offers an excellent occasion to discover a selection of archive footage by the EFEO.
