“It was 300 days too long. He gave me his cell phone so I couldn’t call him any more.”


The concept of the Museum Of Broken Relationships ROCKS my world. It a website, and touring exhibition, which consists solely of donated objects that represent broken relationships.

For example, the description for the Under-knee Prosthesis artifact from Spring 1992 in Croatia read, "In a Zagreb hospital I met a beautiful, young and ambitious social worker from the Ministry of Defense. When she helped me to get certain materials, which I, as a war invalid needed for my under-knee prosthesis, love was born. The prosthesis endured longer than our love. It was made of sturdier material!"

The Museum Of Broken Relationships is also a public art project, which anyone can easily participate in by simply donating an object and sharing the story associated with it.
