In the Cambodian society victims of the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979) are taking up an uncommon
discursive position. Anyone that has suffered from the Khmer Rouge is considered to be a victim including
former Khmer Rouge members who were brutaly disadvantaged by their own party. The nuanced discourse on
victims (and perpetrators) is in contrast with authoritarian Cambodian state politics. This photo essay about an
exhibition in former torture prison S-21 demonstrates this uncommon and contrasting discourse.
