Museum of Broken Relationships

A museum dedicated to broken hearts has been founded in Croatia.

 

“The Museum of Broken Relationships is an art concept which proceeds from the assumption that objects possess integrated fields – ‘holograms’ of memories and emotions – and intends with its layout to create a space of ‘secure memory’ or ‘protected remembrance’ in order to preserve the material and nonmaterial heritage of broken relationships.”

 

Amongst the exhibits is a molecular animal chemical puzzle from a lovesick chemist in Ljubljana, Slovenia: “An animal constructed out of different objects (chemical puzzle) with eyes glued on and a piece of paper saying who gave me this present.” Other exhibits include an axe (the guy chopped up his ex-girlfriend’s furniture) and a prosthesis (“it endured longer than our love.”) Hmmm …

 

Catch the museum on tour this summer in Ireland, Serbia, Croatia and Slovakia.
