The Museum of Broken Relationships Is Coming to Shanghai

May 29, 2018 | 13:12 Tue
Coming to Shanghai, spreading heartbreak, dejection, agony, bitterness, despair, loneliness, and a little bit of mirth is Zagreb, Croatia's world famous Museum of Broken Relationships, which is exactly what it sounds like: a traveling exhibition of artifacts bearing witness to love lost, love rejected and love squandered. Typical display piece: an axe mounted on the wall, donated by a Berliner who used it to chop up their ex-lover's furniture. Other items include photographs, love letters, discarded keepsakes and mementoes, and the general leftover detritus from relationships, for whatever reason, that have gone sour, sourced worldwide since 2003. They should be able to pick up a few items in Shanghai, one would think. The Museum of Broken Relationships will be showing at the soon to be opened Columbia Circle from June 15 to August 1. *Sob!*
