Univ.-Prof. Dr. Gabriele Jutz
Gabriele Jutz is full professor of Film and Media Studies at the
University of Applied Arts Vienna. Her current research interests include the history, theory and aesthetics of experimental cinema, film sound, as well as media technicity and materiality. At present she also participates in an international research project entitled Reset the Apparatus! Retrograde Technicity in Artistic Photographic and Cinematic Practices (project leader: Edgar Lissel), which deals with so-called obsolete media and technologies in contemporary art practices.
Her most recent book Cinéma brut. Eine alternative Genealogie der Filmavantgarde discusses films that reject the usual tools of filmmaking, films made without the use of a camera, films made of found footage, and those that expand the limits of the film “performance” beyond what takes place on the screen. In 2010 she hold a Chair of Film Studies at Johann Wolfgang von Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. From 2001 to 2003 she received a scholarship from the Austrian Scientific Fund to pursue her postdoctoral research (habilitation). From 1988 to 1994 she was a participant in a French-Austrian exchange program between the Austrian Academy of Sciences with France/CNRS (Centre National de Recherche Scientifique). Already in 1987 she had received a three year research grant from the Austrian Scientific Research Fund (FWF) on Gender and Film (together with Claudia Preschl; project leader: Gloria Withalm). She also lectured at the Universities of Vienna, Salzburg, Graz, and at the Danube University Krems. She finished her studies at Paris Lodron University of Salzbourg in 1988 with a PhD on Fiction Film as a Source of Historiography. She acquired her MA (Lehramt) in History and Romance Studies in 1984. 1983 she received her Diplôme d’études approfondies in film studies at University Paris 3 Sorbonne.
She is a member of the Director’s Board of Synema – Gesellschaft für Film und Medien (Vienna), the Austrian Society of Semiotics and the Centre for Avant-Garde Studies, University of Iceland. She is also the National Representative to the Executive Committee in the International Association for Semiotic Studies.
