Beautiful World At the Goethe Institute, 50 Princes Gate, London SW7 until 28 February

The three young Berlin-based photographers in 'Beautiful World' show colour landscapes or city-scapes, but their images hardly conform to familiar notions of the 'beautiful' - particularly Andrea Rostazy's large-format views of London, Paris and Berlin. Her territory is no-man'sland, zones of neglect or transition. Her cities are almost interchangeable: only a distant 'Sainsbury's' sign anchors one weed-strewn wasteland to the UK. Some of the landscapes that Ulrike Kuschel finds in Eastern Europe are similarly dishevelled; more often she selects the almost picturesque. The apparent fidelity of Antje Majewski's panoramas (above) is deceptive: hers is a collaged and constructed world.
