Banksy’s Dismaland

Banksy strikes again! You may remember the artist’s Guantanamo stunt at Disneyland a couple of years ago (HERE) Well, this time, he took things a little further, creating his own amusement bemusement park exhibition in Weston-super-Mare, England. Dismaland features a Disney-like castle, mini golf park, a ferris wheel, carousel, and work from 58 global artists. Of course, all with a twist of Bansky. Dismaland is open to the public from August 22 through September 27th. Check out some photos before you book your trip…

From the Dismaland brochure:

Are you looking for an alternative to the soulless sugar-coated banality of the average family day out? Or just somewhere cheaper. Then this is the place for you—a chaotic new world where you can escape from mindless escapism. Instead of a burger stall, we have a museum. In place of a gift shop we have a library, well, we have a gift shop as well.

Bring the whole family to come and enjoy the latest addition to our chronic leisure surplus—a bemusement park. A theme park who’s big theme is: theme parks should have bigger themes…

This event contains adult themes, distressing imagery, extended use of strobe lighting, smoke effects and swearing. The following items are strictly prohibited: knives, spraycans, illegal drugs, and lawyers from the Walt Disney corporation.
