Beatrix Ruf (Germany, 1960) is a German art curator and currently the director of the Stedelijk Musuem Amsterdam. She has previously been, just to list a few, the director of the Kunsthalle Zurich and Kunsthaus Glarus and in 2006 she was the curator of the third edition of the Tate Triennial. Ruf has a faultless eye for young talent and an infallible radar for the ‘zeitgeist’, which make her an in-demand jury member and expert for public and independent collections. In 2012, she was listed in the top ten of the most influential people in the art world by ArtReview.
