Museum of Broken Relationships, Tristan Bates Theatre and 38 Earlham Street, London, WC2H August 15th - September 4th 2011

The Museum of Broken Relationships is a travelling exhibition which has been all over Europe, as well as Singapore and Cape Town, reaching its permanent resting place in Zagreb, Croatia in late 2010. The artist curators Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic came up with the concept when their relation came to an end six years ago and they were dividing their possessions. A light hearted remark about creating a museum from the ‘items of lost love’ sparked a phenomenon leading to a collection of over 700 items, donated by people from all over Europe and further afield.
