The Museum of Broken Relationships takes its visitors on a journey through more than 100 separations all around the world.

The winner of the Kenneth-Hudson-Award for the most innovative museum in Europe is composed of evocative objects which remained as silent witnesses of love lost. The moving assortment became the building blocks of a museum capable of communicating the collective and personal emotional heritage.

The “Museum of Broken Relationships”, founded in Zagreb in 2006, arrives in Basel in the frame of the festival „It’s the real thing – Basler Dokumentartage 2015″ after travelling to Berlin, Cape Town, San Francisco, Singapore, London and Paris. Like everywhere it will be completed with objects and stories of the local population. The premise on which the exhibition was built is based on universally understandable feelings – love and loss.
