The Museum that Pays Tribute to Broken Relationships
“It’s a love museum – just maybe upside down,” says Dražen Grubišić, co-founder of The Museum of Broken Relationships.
At first glance, the museum, situated in Zagreb, Croatia, houses a peculiar collection of seemingly unrelated and mundane objects. Take a closer look though, and you will find that each object embodies the story of a love that failed to last.
Inspired by their own break-up, artists Grubišić and his former partner Olinka Vištica wanted to create a place – using mementos that were “tokens of love and that made sense only in the relationship” – to explore how humans experience romance.
Donors from around the world have contributed items to the collection, each one telling a different story. Some are sad, some amusing, but each one gives a unique perspective on what it means to be in a relationship and what happens when it comes to an end. Items in the museum are as random as an axe, a stiletto shoe, a postcard etc.
“These are not artists, these are common people, everyday stories, but, as it turns out, they are stranger than any fiction you could imagine,” Grubišić explains.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
