9/11 ART

The 9/11 Memorial Art Project comprises artworks that engage with the US and global socio-political issues, from a counter-memory perspective. The artworks in this project are anti-memorials to traumatic geopolitical events and highlight narratives that were erased from mainstream discourses.

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.

9/11 as a Metaphor

In this work, I examine the phenomenon of 9/11-type terrorist attacks that have proliferated globally since 9/11, with a special focus on the Madrid attacks on March 11, 2004, the Mumbai attacks on November 26, 2008, and the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015.
