Take an abandoned amusement park in Weston Super Mare, in the south west of England, add a whole bunch of Banksy and you end up with Dismaland. An apocalyptic theme park, a nice alternative. I wonder if Banksy read my blog post from 2 years ago and got the idea from there?! If so I'll be needing flights and some free entry tickets k thanks.
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.
It's not just Banksy though, there's a heap of other artists contributing pieces, including Escif, Maskull Lasserre, Kate McDowell, Paco Pomet, Dietrich Wegner, Michael Beitz, Brock Davis, Ronit Baranga and a few others.
Oh and there's going to be a Jimmy Saville themed Punch and Judy Show, hoping for video of that!
