Dismaland

The Dismaland Day Thread (August 14, 2022)

Let’s enjoy this Sunday another map infographic: this time from “The UK’s most disappointing new visitor attraction” – 2015’s Dismaland. A pop-up art exhibition celebrating the United Kingdom’s long tradition of shit theme parks, it was masterminded by anonymous artist and multi-millionaire Banksy and included over fifty other artists as well as film-makers and musicians, including Pussy Riot and Run The Jewels. The event proved to be enormously successful with 150,000 guests visiting over its five-week opening with tickets increasingly re-sold at exorbitant prices.
