The Museum of Broken Relationships
Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić
Rating: 4 / 5
What does it look like when love dies? Fascinated by the idea, after Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić broke up they created the Museum of Modern Relationships, and encouraged people to send in an object that represented their past relationships. They found that it wasn’t just a beautiful project, but also a therapeutic one that allows people to move on, and find semblance within the items.
From broken romantic relationships, to death, divorce, suicide, affairs, family estrangement and random circumstances, this book shares 203 of the most interesting items in the Museum of Broken Relationships.
Wedding dresses, notes, rings, stuffed toys—this is an evocative and moving tribute to the heartbreak every human being experiences. You may even be moved to submit your own memento once you’ve turned the last page.
