It’s like Disney World, but the nightmare version.
Welcome to Dismaland, an art amusement park created by graffiti artist Banksy that will haunt your dreams.
Dismaland is a five-week show housed inside and around a derelict Tropicana building in Weston-super-Mare, a seaside town in Somerset, England.
Banksy describes his wonderland as a “family theme park unsuitable for children,” according to the BBC.
Which means that you can appease your children by taking them to an amusement park while simultaneously torturing them.
The park features enough apocryphal Disney World imaginings to ruin a 5-year-old forever.
And works go beyond just Banksy. Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, and other artists have pieces on exhibit.
And while it’s all so creepy, it does make you THINK…
Why is this grim reaper in a bumper car?
Maybe it’s to represent the haphazard way that death seems to bump into our lives.
Why is this selfie spot surrounded by blank space?
Perhaps you make a beautiful place disappear amongst your flagrant narcissism.
And why are these hoodie-clad children surrounded by boats in a pond?
Perchance they signify a lost generation.
Why is she an imbecile?
There’s a possibility that this woman is saying blind consumerism makes you look stupid.
And why is Willy jumping out of a toilet?
Methinks he might desperately be trying to escape the marine life industry.
