Museum of Broken Relationships
Tomorrow, on Valentine’s Day the Museum of Broken Relationships will record their highest attendance for the year.
“The objects that are here represent all the stages of a breakup … and how people go through love,” said Drazen Grubisic, a designer and artist who co-founded the museum in 2010 in the Croatian capital.
“The mementos — collected from all over the world — are random and varied. Each item comes with dates and locations of the relationships, and notes by their anonymous donors.
Some are funny. The note next to a garter belt says: “I never put them on. The relationship might have lasted longer if I had.”
Some are bitter. The garden gnome flew over a car driven by a husband who turned “arrogant and heartless.” It bounced on the asphalt, shattering its face.”
The museum is located in Zagreb, Croatia but if you happen to be in London, The National Centre for Craft & Design will be host to some of the pieces until April 15, 2012.
