The exhibition “Nach Abschluss der Reise” (After The Journey Ended) presents the work of female artists, whose practices are connected to traveling. These travels include the departure to unknown regions and situations as well as the exploration, learning and experiences collected there. The exhibition does not collect travel sketches or souvenirs, but works that have been made after the journey ended, in the “settled and secluded space” of the artist studio.

The exhibition comprises sculptures, collages, screenprints and paintings made by young artists from Berlin and Leipzig. A special position within the exhibition is taken by a selection of drawings by the artist Romane Holderried Kaesdorf (1922–2007). Kaesdorf was not interested in the physical act of traveling to foreign countries and cultures, but in an ongoing examination of contemporary art and the international art market, which she observed closely, as well as questioned and criticized. Highly informed, she traveled in her mind and included these journeys with gusto in her rich drawing work.
