911 Squared Collective | As Chilean artists living in the United States, we keep the experience of the September 11, 1973 coup d'etat in Chile and the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center close to our hearts. Through our art, we denounce the global corrosion of civil liberties under a world wide US-Led military-corporate empire and bring attention to the historical significance and connections between the two nine elevens. As a collective of concerned artists, writers, and musicians, we honor and support the social movements that struggle against tyranny around the world and work toward a more socially equitable and sustainable future.
