Back in 2010 when I first heard about the Museum of Broken Relationships (a traveling exhibition of donated emotionally-charged remnants from past relationships), it came across as a tad self-indulgent, or at best, whimsical.

Now that I’m reading about it again on Vice, I guess I see how significant it must be to those who have contributed to it, or to those looking at the objects. It was started by exes Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić after their 2003 breakup and I imagine It must be a bit like exorcising your demons through the fallen demons of others.
