Danesh ASHOURI is an interdisciplinary artist based in Freiburg, Germany and Basel, Switzerland. His work explores the boundaries between art, science and society, focusing on the role of the artist as a creator and the possible responsibilities towards the public. In 2020, ASHOURI completed his PhD in Neurotechnology at the University of Freiburg. He currently works as a Research Associate at the Center for Intelligent Machine-Brain Interface Technology (IMBIT), where he combines scientific research with exploring societal values as opposed to the reality of the world we live in. The ArtTech series (starting 2017) is a conceptual framework within which he aims to raise awareness on the topic of neurotechnology and public health. At the moment, ASHOURI is working on the theme of diversity and the way in which opportunities are distributed among the public. He is interested in the unconscious biases we all have and the impact they have on our judgements.
