After circling the globe with over 40 temporary exhibitions and two permanent outposts in Zagreb and LA, the Museum of Broken Relationships has established another flagship display in the form of an interactive website.
The museum boasts over 2,000 exhibits, many of which are truly peculiar. An axe used to chop up an ex's furniture; a magnifying glass necessary to justify just how small one person felt next to their partner; even a small bottle containing the tears someone cried after a breakup.
Regardless of motifs, all items are remnants of relationships that came to an end. This unique blend of nostalgia, guilt, anger and affection is translated into a platform through which unfortunate souls can leave an online trail of their breakups.
Developed by Infinum, a design and development agency specialised in building creative digital products, the site is an online extension of the museum and envisioned as an emotional platform for the global community of heartbroken individuals.
Aside from posting virtual break-up pins, people are invited to donate physical tokens for permanent exhibition. The platform also serves to communicate new exhibitions around the world.
