Banksy goes at Disney and corporate greed with new “Dismaland Bemusement Park” installation


by Duke



Banksy has long used his art to try and wake us up to the socioeconomic crimes of corporations, but this is a whole new level. The anonymous artist has enlisted the help of other artists, comedians and musicians to create a “Dismaland Bemusement Park,” a sort of run-down amusement park that attempts to use childlike imagery to tell a story of greed and materialistic consumption that frankly still looks like a lot of fun to visit. Aside from all of the exclusive art installations, you can also catch the likes of Run The Jewels, Pussy Riot and Massive Attack performing at the Weston-super-Mare, UK event. You can see a gallery of photos from the art piece as well as the lineup of performers below.
