Gabriele Jutz is full professor of Film and Media Studies at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and chair of the Department of Media Theory. Her current research interests include the history, theory and aesthetics of experimental cinema and film sound as well as media obsolescence and media archaeology.
Her most recent book Cinéma brut. Eine alternative Genealogie der Filmavantgarde (Cinema Brut: An Alternative Genealogy of Avant-Garde Film, Springer 2010) discusses films that reject the usual tools of filmmaking, such as films made without the use of a camera, found-footage-films, and expanded cinema performances.
In 2010 she held the chair of Film Studies at the Johann Wolfgang von Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. From 2001 to 2003 she was the recipient of a scholarship from the Austrian Science Research Fund (FWF) to pursue her postdoctoral research (habilitation). From 1988 to 1994 she participated in a French-Austrian exchange program between the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the French CNRS (Centre National de Recherche Scientifique). In 1987 she received a three year grant from the Austrian Science Research Fund to conduct research on Gender and Film (together with Claudia Preschl). She has lectured at the Universities of Vienna, Salzburg, Graz, and at the Danube University Krems. She completed her studies at Paris Lodron University of Salzbourg in 1988 with a PhD on Fiction Film as a Source of Historiography. She gained her MA (teaching qualification) in History and Romance Studies in 1984. In 1983 she received her Diplôme d’études approfondies in film studies from University Paris 3 Sorbonne.
