Have you visited Dismaland yet?
No, this isn’t a typo – it’s Banksy’s new exhibition in Weston-super-Mare, which has gained a resoundingly positive response despite its grim ethos.
With the first visitors allowed in the park last week, it’s clear that the experience is not simply another work by the renowned street artist, but an interactive demonstration against the world we live in.
Recycling the typical trappings of theme parks and giving them a dystopian spin, Dismaland showcases the contributions of fifty artists – as well as miserable staff, a carousel on which the horses get turned into lasagne, and a post-apocalyptic ice cream van.
Take a glimpse – if you dare – at Dismaland here and tell us if you’ll be visiting.
