Dismaland opens

20 Aug, 2015

Dismaland, a theme park styled by Banksy, opens in Weston-super-Mare’s Tropicana, a derelict seafront lido. The site houses various sculptures and installations by Banksy,  Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer and Jimmy Cauty. Banksy describes the show as a “family theme park unsuitable for children”.

I loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honor…I guess you’d say it’s a theme park whose big theme is ‘theme parks should have bigger themes’
