Located in an abandoned U.K. beach attraction in the English resort town Western-super-Mare, Dismaland is a collaboration of over fifty artists such as Banksy, Jimmy Cauty, Jenny Holzer and Damien Hurst.
Banksy told BBC that the show is a "family theme park unsuitable for children." The park has rides, interactive artwork, games (that you'll NEVER WIN) and live performances. Audience participation isn't just encouraged; it's required.
Not only is there a grim reaper that hangs out at the park, sometimes he dances to the song "Stayin' Alive." It's like walking through Banksy's mind ”” thought-provoking, ironic and full of dark humor.
Besides taking stabs at Disney and your childhood, Dismaland also takes a stab at Prime Minister David Cameron. No one is immune (which is probably how we wound up in this post-apocalyptic land, anyway).
Banksy wants visitors to take photos. He told BBC, "A dead princess is only complete when surrounded by gawping crowds with their cameras out, or the opportunity to photograph yourself pulling an amazed expression when a killer whale leaps from a toilet."
