Jyoti Mistry

Jyoti Mistry works with film as both a research form and as a mode of artistic practice. She has made critically acclaimed films in multiple genres and her installation work draws from cinematic traditions but is often re-contextualized for non-linear experiences in museums and galleries. Since 2018, she is Professor in Film at HDK-Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg in Sweden; her previous position was at University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa with teaching engagements at New York University; University of Vienna; Arcada University of Applied Science Polytechnic in Helsinki, Nafti in Accra and Alle Arts School at University of Addis Ababa. Currently she is editor in chief of PARSE (Platform of Artistic Research in Sweden).
