Voyage of the Hippo 2 

Hippo is a 36’ junk rig schooner. Over the past two summers (2012-13)  Clemens Poole and a hardy, international crew of artists and travelers have navigated the Danube and Black Sea aboard the Hippo and explored territories along their shores. Voyage of the Hippo is a chronicle of that momentous trek. Upon the return of the Hippolytes to the US in 2012, Art for Humans/Occupational Art School hosted an evening celebrating the successful journey at Bat Haus in Bushwick. In 2013 the VotH event took place at Good Faith Space and featured a multimedia presentation, as well as an installation of photo documentation.
