His latest art gallery, however, is a take on Disneyland called ‘Dismaland’ a ‘bemusement’ park.
The official brochure describes it in the following manner:
“Are you looking for an alternative to the soulless sugar-coated banality of the average family day out? Or just somewhere cheaper. Then this is the place for you—a chaotic new world where you can escape from mindless escapism. Instead of a burger stall, we have a museum. In place of a gift shop we have a library, well, we have a gift shop as well…This event contains adult themes, distressing imagery, extended use of strobe lighting, smoke effects and swearing. The following items are strictly prohibited: knives, spray-cans, illegal drugs, and lawyers from the Walt Disney corporation.”
