Branka Tomasevic and Dragan Mitrovic

29 and 39 years old

“People are telling us that we’re incompetent, sometimes they even make fun of us. At work, others are joking that I’m so incompetent that I can’t have children. They are also vulgar at times. They keep asking us why we invest so much money in the house if we have no one to inherit it.”

The ceramic figurines are being given to Branka Tomašević by her husband Dragan, who finds them discarded on the streets of Slavonski Brod as a utility company worker. Branka and Dragan have been living together for 15 years, they have no children of their own, and are considering medically assisted fertilisation.
