Q&A: Co-founder Drazen Grubisic on the Museum of Broken Relationships

Artist Dražen Grubišić and film producer Olinka Vištica were in a relationship for four years, and then they broke up. But their relationship didn't end there -- instead, they entered into a unique partnership by founding the Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb, Croatia: a heart-wrenching, funny and very personal collection of the silly little gifts people give each other when they are in love and then can't throw away after the affair is over.

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
