Ranbir Kaleka to work on Holocaust

Well known Indian artist Ranbir Singh Kaleka is commissioned to create a permanent video installation on Holocaust at the Jewish Museum in Chicago, also called the Spertus Museum, which is moving into a new building opening in September 2007. “I believe it’s brave of the director and the curator to shift away from a Jewish-centric engagement with the subject,” Kaleka told in New Delhi. Kaleka had attended the artist residency in Montalvo in 2006 and made a large video installation piece called “Crossings”, which was shown at the last Venice Biennale at the Icon show. Also he represented India along with Nalini Malani in a show conceived to pay tributes to Nam Jun Paik at Miami Basel 2006.
