Museum of Broken Relationships

Did you just get dumped? Are you finding it difficult to get over that special someone who just broke up with you?

Well, then - don't wallow in your misery, there is a better way: share it with the world by showcasing "the detritus of soured love" in Croatian artists Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic's Museum of Broken Relationships.

Beginning in the Croatian capital of Zagreb, the exhibit has since traveled throughout the Balkans before landing in Berlin, where it currently appears. Along the way, the curators have collected more then 300 anonymous objects, from a wedding dress to an ax, that scorned citizens donated. According to Grubisic, those from Croatia's south tended to be more "merciless" towards their ex, while the Berlin additions to the show have so far been the most "violent." (Source: Radar Online)

When asked about his favorite piece, Grubisic said:

"We have had teddy bears won in funfair rides, CDs with favourite songs, love poetry and photographs, there seems to be a lot of broken hearted people in Britain.

"My favourite is a Welsh love spoon, which obviously did not work according to the broken-hearted sender." (Source: Ananova)
