In the year 2000 in Zagreb Andreja Kulunčić launched the project Nama: 1908 Employees, 15 Department Stores, designed as a public awareness raising campaign about the difficult situation faced by the formerly prominent Nama department store chain. Since the early 2000s when it went bankrupt, to date, Nama was reduced to only two department stores in Zagreb. After an interview with trade union representatives, workers and sales personnel, Kulunčić designed a number of public posters featuring the real Nama employees Branka Stanić, Biserka Kenenarić and Barbara Kovačević whose economic security was brought into question, and whose portraits on the posters warned about the serious state of affairs within the company. Happy Labour Day! The fight continues!
