Since the Apollo 11 lunar landing in 1969, artefacts – ranging from flags and equipment to ephemeral footprints – have been left behind on the moon. NASA and a number of historical preservationists have called for the moon to be considered an international heritage site, effectively a “moon museum.” But who would control such an institution? Our exhibition explores this question as its subject matter. We invite you to tour Protectorate 1, a speculative and fictional installation on the moon. See astronaut footprints before they are destroyed, view an eclectic archive of lunar information, shop at the Intergalactic Souvenir Stand! Using humour to address a serious subject, Protectorate 1: A Darker Side of the Moon questions issues of space supremacy, celestial colonization, world heritage, and preservation.
