Banksy’s latest project is a big one.
The artist has built a haunted anti-theme park he’s calling “Dismaland.” The exhibition in Weston super Mare, England features 10 of his own new works, as well as pieces by 60 other artists including Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer and David Shrigley.w?
There will also be a “gothic sculpture park” housed in a tent, an “oil caliphate themed” mini-golf course and a bonfire where books by the much-maligned novelist Jeffrey Archer will be burned daily. Musicians including Kate Tempest and members of Pussy Riot will perform concerts during the park’s five-week run, according to The New York Times.
“Dismaland” opens to the general public tomorrow, but local London residents get a sneak peak today. Some of these attendees have already Instagrammed snapshots of the anti-amusement park, giving the Internet its first look.

Probably one of the most depressing attractions we have ever seen. Banksy's new art project is a 2.5 acre dystopian amusement park installed in Western Super Mare and features peices by other artists including Damien Hirst.
