    From her early staged images with vaguely intimated story lines to her recent, structuralist-influenced films, Sharon Lockhart's work has consistently staked out an ambiguous territory between the photographic and the cinematic—a location where the flow of narrative and the stasis of repetition intersect. This mid-career survey, while centering on the Los Angeles–based artist's photographs, aims to capture that driving tension by emphasizing her use of the serial format. The hybrid nature of Lockhart's projects is equally reflected in the museum's collaboration with Abaton, a local cinema, which plans to host a concurrent retrospective of her films. The show at the Kunstverein, presenting photos from the early 1990s to this year, will also include two films, No (2003) and Pine Flat (2005). A catalogue raisonné, with essays by Diedrich Diederichsen, Helen Molesworth, and curator Yilmaz Dziewior, accompanies the exhibition.
