These photographs are images of a unique museum collection.  The Museum of Broken Relationships originally began as a project in Croatia by Zagreb based artists Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić now tours internationally.  While many may destroy the painful mementos of a failed relationship, the museum seeks to transform the impulse into a creative one.  The museum points out other rituals such as funerals, marriages, and even graduation farewells while break-up do not have a formal ceremony.  In a way the museum offers one to assist with the emotional impact of an ended reltionship.  For this reason, the museum encourages people to donate personal belongings to be exhibited as “their love legacy as a sort of a ritual, a solemn ceremony.”

    It’s a great creative concept that hasn’t been explored all that much. People often keep souvenirs from ended relationships, and it would make sense to display these as art.
