Croatia's Museum Of Broken Relationships

Conceptualized and currently housed in Zagreb, Croatia, the Museum of Broken Relationships grew from a traveling exhibition dedicated to failed relationships and all that they leave behind–physically and emotionally.

Instead of watching objects from prior relationships gather dust or have them serve as haunting and vestigial relics of lost loves, people can donate these items to the museum’s collection and thus commemorate their unique experience in a meaningful, therapeutic, or purely exhibitionist fashion. The museum draws on the words of French philosopher Roland Barthes for its inspiration: Every passion, ultimately, has its spectator…[there is] no amorous oblation without a final theater.
