Metzingen Trademark. Dieser Titel mag ein wenig gekünstelt klingen und trifft doch bestens den Inhalt dieses Katalogs: die besondere Kultur einer Outlet-Stadt. Denn Metzingen ist eine schwäbische Kleinstadt, aber es ist auch die „Hauptstadt der Schnäppchenjäger“, der „Wallfahrtsort der Warenwelt“ und Europas größtes „Outlet-Zentrum“. Metzingen ist damit Heimat im doppelten Sinne: Es ist die lokal vertraute Heimat der Metzingerinnen und Metzinger, aber es ist auch die neue Outlet-Heimat der internationalen Smart-Shopper. Beide – die der Outlets und die der Stadt – funktionieren kulturell meist nebeneinander, manchmal gegeneinander, aber inzwischen auch miteinander. Denn in Metzingen werden nicht nur Markenprodukte verkauft, sondern die Stadt macht sich mittlerweile selbst zur Marke – zur Trademark Metzingen, zur Ur-Heimat des neuen Konsums. In den Metzinger Alltag übersetzt, heißt dies für die Bürgerin/den Bürger: „Man muss sich arrangieren mit dieser neuen Welt.“

A must-have for adults who want their children to love and understand art, this guide provides valuable tips for making your visit to a museum or gallery with children a success. It anticipates how kids might react to paintings by artists as diverse as Kandinsky, Hopper, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Turner and then gives you the tools to have a meaningful discussion about what they see. It doesn't matter if you only know a little about painting or if you are more interested in sports or sciences; if you trust your own eyes, you can help children "enter" a picture and feel comfortable in the world it depicts. Sample questions and answers about 30 artworks from the Renaissance to the 21st century provide historical background, explain genres such as still life and portrait, and demystify religious and mythological themes. This new edition features all new paintings along with labeled sections for easy reference according to the age of your child (5-7 years, 8-10 years, 11-13+ years). Full-color reproductions of all the paintings invite study at home either before or after a museum visit.
