Dismaland is closed

Banksy‘s Dismaland is closed for good. The dark twist on Disneyland — or an honest depiction, if you loathe the place — highlighted the works of artists Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, and others. It’s one big interactive art piece. For all of you who were lucky enough to have visited Dismaland, damn you. For those of us not fortunate enough to have attended, thankfully there’s plenty of photos and videos for us. Watch Dismaland: The Official Unofficial Film after the jump.

Dismaland

Disneyland is billed as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” but happy isn’t for everyone. Some people find all that relentless cheer to be kinda creepy, or simply prefer to mix things up with more offbeat, macabre entertainments. For all those people, there’s Banksy‘s Dismaland.

Touted as “the UK’s most disappointing new visitor attraction,” Dismaland showcases work by Damien Hurst, Jenny Holzer, and other artists (in addition to Bansky himself). It also features an hourlong program of short films by Ze Frank, Kristen Lepore, and many more. Get the Banksy Dismaland preview, and watch all 24 shorts, after the jump. Read More »
