Silent night?

Figures of a crib, Maria, Jesus and Joseph in the background, a white cow and a grey donkey next to them, a band plays music in front of them.
The Christmas carol of Silent night! Holy night! celebrates a time of quiet prayer and reverence. Yet any sense of peace and quiet disappears at the latest when the angels utter their hallelujahs and the shepherds set off with their flocks to visit the Christ Child asleep in a manger. Ox and ass, musicians and market traders also offer the newborn a spirited welcome. Our exhibition presents crowded nativity scenes and gives visitors the chance to listen to – and sing along with – Christmas carols that evoke the Holy night.
