Museum of Broken Relationships, Los Angeles

3.7
The Museum of Broken Relationships grew from a traveling exhibition revolving around the concept of failed relationships and their ruins. The museum offers a chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creation: by contributing to the permanent collection. Although often colored by personal experience, local culture and history, the exhibits presented here form universal patterns offering us to discover them and feel the comfort they can bring.

Visitors are encouraged to be active participants in curating the new exhibition. Whatever the motivation for donating personal belongings – be it sheer exhibitionism, therapeutic relief, or simple curiosity, people are challenged to embrace the idea of exhibiting their love legacy as a sort of ritual, a solemn ceremony. The act of donation invites the viewer to participate in a preemptive archaeology that chronicles and the displays the items that are of the greatest importance to us now.



Hopefully, the objects will also inspire our personal search for deeper insights and strengthen our belief in something more meaningful.
