About the Museum of Broken Relationships:
All of us have experienced the end of a loving relationship- whether with a lover, friend, or family member. Most of us have hidden away the objects that remind us of these painful heartbreaks. Have you ever wished there was a meaningful way of letting go of these ‘things’? Have you ever wanted to preserve beautiful moments from your past? The Museum is an artistic project in which everyone can participate. It is a grand effort to honor the emotional heritage of humankind by offering the possibility to use the positive forces of creation and memory (instead of destruction and oblivion) in overcoming your broken heart.
