That depends? 
 
What is numbering system are you using. Are the glyphs for 1 representative of a single unit, or have you redefined them as something else. 
 
What is the "+" operator in this context, is it addition, or concatenation? 
 
In any numerical system along a commutative ring with modulus greater than 2, 1+1 = 2
 
In binary (modulus = 2) 1+1 = 10
 
If we consider "+" to be a concatenation operator, and your glyphs to be single character strings 1+1 = 11

I go to this depth, because, either you are massively trolling and I am bored, and it is 4 minutes to midnight so feeding you will not allow you to turn evil by a slim margin of error, or you are asking because there must be greater context. 
This might be a trick question.
It depends on the number system you aare working in.
 
If working in our usual decimal system (based on powers of 10) then of course 1+1=2
 
But if you are working in the binary system (based on powers of two), which is used in computer work, then 1+1=10
You're kidding, right?
 
1 + 1 = 2
