    # THE EXHIBITION
    At the heart of listening and its many dimensions
    Starting from the experience of this extraordinary genius, who was both deaf and socially isolated yet also the composer of the 'Ode to Joy', which became the European Union anthem, the exhibition LUDWIG VAN – Listening in order to hear each other' (Ecouter pour s’entendre) explores the many facets of listening. Listening, whether physiological, mental, social or political, is omnipresent in each and every one of us. Do we know how to listen? Do we need to listen to ourselves to better hear others? Maybe we're actuallly deaf and don't know it? This exhibition takes the visitor to the very heart of listening and its many dimensions, while questioning our own perception of sounds and of others.
