On July 5 and 6, 2018, the Rotterdam magazine REALmag. organized a magazine marathon within the framework of the project ‘Self-portraits of the Old West’ by artist Hans Bossmann and theatre-maker Brecht Hermans. In the month of June Hans and Brecht visited 15 locations in the Old West (Oude Westen) (Rotterdam) where the inhabitants of this district had made drawings on furniture and objects. While they were drawing their stories were recorded. Without any significant preparation and within 24 hours a new edition of REALmag.was made in which the editors expressed their own interpretation of the project. On Sunday July 8, the magazine, hot off the press, was showing itself off on the final presentation of the project.
