Congratulations to EMPAC 2023 artist-in-residence Aura Satz on receiving the New:Vision Award from CPH:DOX for her film Preemptive ListeningSatz was in residence for post-production film work with EMPAC curatorial staff and engineers.

“Elevating us into sensory abstraction, this film also takes us down into the underbelly of disorder and chaos, as well as the destruction and violence unleashed by human desires for order and certainty. An elegy for a listening lost, an awakening call for the siren inside each one of us. Artistically sophisticated yet socio-politically grounded, the New:Vision Award goes to Preemptive Listening, by Aura Satz.”
