Breaking up is hard to do?as the song says, but a new museum in Berlin hopes to turn the experience into something reflective and thoughtful and even positive by putting mementoes from peoples failed relationships on display.
The idea is simple: you take something from a relationship that has ended and donate it to the museum along with some information of what it represents to them.
From small items ? furry pink handcuffs? - to more drastic examples the museum seems to cover a range of emotions, with this example from the story proving ?crimes of passion? can be rather over-the-top:
?One woman donated an axe and described chopping up the furniture of her cheating female lover. "The more her room filled up with chopped up furniture, the more I started to feel better. Two weeks after she was kicked out she came to take the furniture. It was neatly arranged into small heaps and fragments of wood.??
Using an axe to get back at an ex does at least have a nice sound to it!
Anything you would consider donating?
