Museum of Broken Relationships, 2015

Exhibition project, 17 April–30 August, 2015

Invited by Boris Nikitin, co-curated by Olinka Vištica, Dražen Grubišić, and Benedikt Wyss, conzept: Museum of Broken Relationships (Olinka Vištica, Dražen Grubišić)

Produced by: Basler Dokumentartage 15, in cooperation with HMB Historisches Museum Basel

The unique art project Museum of Broken Relationships takes its visitors on a journey through over 100 separations around the globe. A knife, a torn Titanic poster, a pregnancy test: With a wide variety of objects, the „most innovative museum in Europe“ (Kenneth Hudson Award 2011) shows broken relationships from around the world. Against the background of social norms and political upheavals, the associated stories tell of an international panorama of emotions - of anger, sadness, indifference, a desire for revenge, sometimes irony. The Museum of Broken Relationships made its first guest appearance in Switzerland. As in all cities, the exhibition was expanded to include objects and stories from the local population.
