As of October 1, 2019, Dr. Christine Reeh-Peters has accepted the junior professorship for Theory and Practice of Artistic Research in Digital Media at the Film University.

Christine Reeh-Peters studied art science and media art at the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe from 1995 and 1996. This was followed by studies in montage and directing at the Film University in Lisbon and, in 2007, a master's degree in philosophy of art and aesthetics at the Faculdade de Letras of the University of Lisbon, which was supported by a grant from the Fundaçao para a Ciencia e a Tecnologia.

Equally supported was her PhD dissertation, which was written there in cooperation with the University of Bonn: Reeh-Peters is influenced in her philosophical thinking by the currents of new realism and speculative materialism, among others. Her dissertation "The solaristic system" outlines an ontology of film based on Martin Heidegger and the film "Solaris" by Andrei Tarkovskij. The defense of the thesis, which was evaluated "summa cum laude", took place in 2017.

Since fall 2016 she worked as an assistant professor at the HfG Karlsruhe with Prof. Razvan Radulescu in the field of media art/film. At the same time, she helped shape the city's cultural life as CEO of the Kinemathek Karlsruhe. Reeh-Peters is also the author/director of 10 documentaries and producer of about 20 films also in feature film and TV series formats. As a filmmaker, she questions the relationship between film image, imagination and reality as well as common cinematic formats.
