The Mondriaan Fund is located at the Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam. From 1875 until 1966, this building housed the so-called IJkwezen (department of weights and measures): this was where weights used to be calibrated; measures and scales that were formerly used at the greengrocer’s, the butcher’s and the grocery shops, for example. Those scales had to be calibrated on a regular basis, because weights, in the long run, wear out. If the weight was too light, then extra lead was melted onto the underside of the weights. After calibration, a stamp was pressed into the weights. In 1988, the Fund for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture (The BKVB Fund) brought the building into use, and as from 2012 this cultural fund merged with the Mondriaan Foundation, resulting in the Mondriaan Fund.
