Guerilla artist Banksy has taken a swipe at Disney with his new art installation dubbed Dismaland Bemusement Park.
The site, described as a “festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism”, sits on an abandoned waterpark in the English town of Weston-super-Mare.
Dismaland will feature works of over 50 international artists across a revamped cinema, mini golf installation, a circus tent and, perhaps giving advertisers a reason to shiver, ‘Guerilla Island’ which will dish out workshops on how to hack billboards, according to Forbes.
Subverting the ‘magical’ Disney experience, the bemusement park will also feature a desolate Disney Palace.
Banksy told the Weston Mercury: “I loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honour.
“I hope everyone from Weston will take the opportunity to once more stand in a puddle of murky water eating cold chips to the sound of crying children.”
Anticipating trouble ahead, the Dismaland website prohibits: “Spray paint, marker pens, knives and legal representatives of the Walt Disney Corporation.”
The installation opens on Saturday and will run to 27 September. Check out the website here.
