Guido Schiefer

lives and works in Cologne, Germany

"My work was created in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in Tuol Sleng, which is known today as the Museum of Genocidal Crimes. Formerly run as a high school it was used in the late 1970 by the Khmer Rouge as a detention and torture centre. The civilian prisoners were composed of workers, farmers, engineers, technicians, intellectuals, professors, teachers, students, and even ministers and diplomats. After detention and torture in Tuol Sleng most of the prisoners were transported to a place 15 kilometres south-west of Phnom Penh called "Choeung Ek" (or maybe better known as "Killing fields"), where they were killed and buried in mass graves. Both of the coloured pictures were taken in Tuol Sleng, whereas the monochrome picture was taken in Choeung Ek.

Meine Arbeit entstand in Phnom Penh, Kambodscha in "Tuol Sleng", dem Foltergefängnis der Roten Khmer. In der ehemaligen Schule wurden politische Gegner, aber auch vermeintliche Intellektuelle wie Ärzte oder Lehrer gefoltert und dann bis auf wenige Ausnahmen an einem Ort namens Choeung Ek, besser bekannt als "Killing Fields" grausam ermordet. Die beiden oberen, farbigen Fotos entstanden im Tuol Sleng-Gefängnis, das untere in Choeung Ek."
