Dismaland, the lost paradise of Banksy

"On the morning of Thursday, August 20th, the veil was officially lifted: the most famous and mysterious urban artist, Banksy, announced the opening day of Dismaland, his "Bemusement Park".
With this announcement, the modest Weston-super-Mare became, to the surprise of its inhabitants, the place to be - a coveted destination that nevertheless describes itself as "Britain's most disappointing new amusement park",
as stated on its website, reflecting the deliciously provocative mindset that has become Banksy's trademark."
