Horst Bredekamp, 67, ist der Berliner Statthalter im Intendantenteam mit Neil MacGregor und Hermann Parzinger. Sie sollen das Konzept für das Humboldt-Forum entwickeln. Der Berliner Kunsthistoriker, der seit 1993 an der Humboldt-Universität (HU) lehrt, kennt den Schotten schon lange, die beiden pflegen eine kollegiale Freundschaft. An der HU beschäftigt sich Bredekamp mit der Renaissance, den neuen Medien und politischer Ikonographie. Wir trafen Bredekamp oben auf der Terrasse der Humboldt-Box – mit Blick auf den Rohbau des Schlosses.
