Zagreb – The Museum of Failed Love

Zagreb – The Museum of Failed Love
The traveling art project ‘The Museum of Failed Love’, which has in recent years traveled around the world presenting the material heritage of former emotional relationships, has settled on the ground floor of the Kulmer Palace in Zagreb's Upper Town. The museum combines love items and memories left after the break ups of romantic relationships, as well as stories and memories that are associated with them. Exhibited on around 300 square meters are about a hundred items from anonymous donors from around the world. Each exhibit consists of items that range from the bizarre to the banal and at the same time unique, alongside a touching, painful or funny love story written in Croatian and English. This is a setup that grows and changes every day, because the visitors themselves are able to participate in the design and creation of the exhibition. Every individual, if they wish so, can bring an item, gift, souvenir, letter or SMS which connects them to a former, ‘failed love’.

Around a hundred odd items such as axes, stuffed tigers, wedding dresses, rings, etc., are thematically divided into ‘the hint of the break up room’, then a room of ‘passion’, ‘anger’, ‘rage’ ...

The Museum of Failed Love was first presented at the 40th Zagreb Salon of Art and Design and in the past four years made nineteen successful tours in America, Europe and Asia.
