The exhibition Dahlhausen viral is curated by the German artist and art collector Christoph Dahlhausen (1960). He smuggles his ‘art viruses’ into the Kunstmuseum Ahlen and contaminates the actual presentation of the museum’s collection with ‘strange’ art works. Some of them are taken from Dahlhausen’s private art collection, others sprout from his collaboration with colleagues from his international network. The result is an exhibition with frictions; surprising and contrasting settings change the perception of what is familiar and seemingly secure.
