#5.5 REALmagathon

On the 5th and 6th of July 2018, the Rotterdam magazine REALmag. organized a magazine marathon as part of the project ‘Self-portraits of the Old West’ by artist Hans Bossmann and theatermaker Brecht Hermans. In the month of June, Hans and Brecht visited 15 places in the Old West (Rotterdam) where furniture and objects were painted by the residents of this district. Their stories were recorded during the paintings. Without any significant preparation a new edition of REALmag was made within 24 hours. The editors have given their own interpretation to the project based on the stories. On Sunday, July the 8th 2018, the magazine, fresh from the press, was showing off at the final presentation of the project.
