Museum of Broken Relationship was first opened in Zagreb more than 10 years ago. The idea was too good to stay locked in Zagreb – so the museum spread all around the world since. It is based on items that describe sad or funny stories of breakups!
From the website of the Museum we find:
“At its core, the Museum is an ever-growing collection of items, each a memento of a relationship past, accompanied by a personal, yet anonymous story of its contributor. Unlike ‘destructive’ self-help instructions for recovery from grief and loss, the Museum offers the chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creativity – by contributing to its universal collection. Museum of Broken Relationships is an original creative art project conceived by Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić in 2006. It has since taken thousands of people on an empathetic journey around the world, challenging our ideas about heritage. Its original permanent location was founded in Zagreb. In 2010 it won the EMYA Kenneth Hudson Award as the most innovative and daring museum project in Europe.”
Linda Carroll from Dublin discovered the Museum and made a MoJo story about it!
