Banksy’s Dismaland Certainly Lives Up To Its Name

August 20, 2015

Secretive street artist Banksy partnered with other modern artists to create a dystopian theme park attraction titled "Dismaland."

Channel 4's Krishnan Guru-Murthy visited "the U.K.'s most disappointing new visitor attraction" to see if the exhibit lived up to its name, and boy does it ever.

The Dismaland exhibit is a twisted take on amusement parks and consumer culture, complete with morose park attendants and grim depictions of fairy-tale scenery.

The exhibit, while not exactly "the happiest place on earth," is certainly interesting — even if it is a little unsettling.
