A Museum for Ian Curtis and Joy Division


Once the Joy Division frontman’s former home went up for sale earlier this year, fans began rallying to purchase the building and turn it into a museum. The campaign fell hugely short of its goal, raising only about 1 percent of its goal on Indiegogo; and some lovers of Joy Division, including former member Bernard Sumner, expressed concern that turning the site of Ian Curtis’s death into a museum would amount to creating a “monument to suicide,” regardless of the positive intent of its founders.
