September 11th with Swami Vivekananda

An installation artwork in Chicago by Indian artist Jitish Kallat juxtaposes two September 11ths, 9/11/2001 which spawned the U.S. government’s color-coded terror alert system and 9/11/1893 when Swami Vivekananda gave a speech invoking an end to sectarian fanaticism. Here’s a great post about this wonderful artwork from Being Blog:
