Welcome to the Museum of Broken Relationships

For real! Instead of indulging in dartboards, google searches, inebriated phone calls, et al., you can contribute an artifact of a true love that went wrong to Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić, who founded the MBR in Zagreb, Croatia, after ending their own romantic partnership in 2006. Nothing is beyond the pale, whether it be a wedding dress, an "I Love You" teddy bear, a busted-up garden gnome, snazzy orange underwear, or a set of fluffy pink handcuffs. Exhibitions have toured internationally at all sorts of prestigious locations. "Despite the museum’s name, the exhibition is full of hope, life, resilience and inspiration." says 
Laura Kriefman, creative producer of the latest exhibition locale, the Tristan Bates Theatre in London. Well, as Cole Porter wrote, "Love is not all peaches and cream,  little dream, goodbye."
So tell us, what would you donate?

  1. Arrgh! Could anything be less appealing than looking at someone else's detritus when you can't even handle your own by the edges, cautiously? Really, all broken love affairs are alike, and the busted dishes, unused tickets, hotel room paraphernalia, etc., are banalities that mean nothing except to the involved, who can't bear them.

  5. If you can stand on the kind of common ground that we found in the Hanoi Hilton, then finding common ground on issues here at home isn't hard at all. this site
