9/11 Anti-memorial Project
Anti-memorials to 9/11
The 9/11 Anti-Memorial Project comprises artworks that engage with the post-9/11 US and global socio-political issues, from a counter-memory perspective. The artworks in this project are anti-memorials to 9/11, a traumatic geopolitical event, and highlight narratives that were erased from mainstream discourses of 9/11. It also seeks to make connections with 9/11-type attacks worldwide, in India, London, Paris, and Madrid.
This anti-memorial seeks to memorialize the Iraqi, Afghani, Syrian, Yemeni, and Pakistani lives lost in America's Wars on Terror post-9/11. Official records put this number at about a million. Unofficial records claim the number to be 37 times that.
