Graffiti artist Banksy has revealed his latest venture - a pop-up art exhibition on a derelict seafront in Weston-super-Mare. Dismaland, which he has branded "an escape from mindless escapism", will take over the former lido for five weeks, subverting Disney's fantasy themed holiday parks for something more thought provoking.
Banksy's dystopian playground features work from over 50 international artists, as well as installations and art works by Bansky, who subverts familiar images and imbues them with new significance.
The Dismaland website refers to the site as a "bemusement park", asking visitors: "Are you looking for an alternative to the sugar-coated tedium of the average family day out? Or just somewhere a lot cheaper?
"Then this is the place for you. Bring the whole family to come and enjoy the latest addition to our chronic leisure surplus..."
Sights include the striking Dismaland castle, featuring Cinderella's smashed carriage at its centre. Here, visitors can gawp at the aftermath of a crash - and at a lifeless Cinderella, whose body hangs out of a window as paparazzi photographers surround the scene.
"It's a theme park whose big theme is - theme parks should have bigger themes", Banksy said in a press release.
