Demonstrating how the Bauhaus continues to further the development of photography in the digital age, this exhibition combines work by 20th century pioneers with contemporary practitioners such as Thomas Ruff, Viviane Sassen and Wolfgang Tillmans. Until 10 March.

Nobuyoshi Araki: Impossible Love, C / O Berlin

Contrasting depictions of public and private experiences in Tokyo from 1969-1973, Araki’s series of image pairs is at once intimate and subjective, offering new perspectives on the body,  sexuality and the nature of the image.  From 8 December.

German photographer Peter Bialobrzeski surveys the globalised metropolis, drawing attention to expansive nature of built environments in Asia and Europe. Taken between 2007 and 2011, the works illustrate an accelerated rate of change. Until 19 January.
