The Last Things

“I don’t understand how you’ve got this far” MoD official, London 2007

Between September 2006 and April 2007, supported by Arts Council of England, David Moore worked in a secure military location below ground in central London. This space will be used as the first port of call in any situation where the safety of the country is under threat. The Ministry of Defence allowed David Moore an unprecedented level of access which has enabled him to observe a live working space, continuously on standby, and fully prepared for the most extreme national emergency.

The Last Things develops ideas about the institutions of government and the manifestations of power first seen in The Commons (Velvet Press 2004).
