public_access_description
This paper bag, made out of recycled newspaper (The Times of India), is made by the Association of the Welfare of the Mentally Disabled in Mysore, India. The newsprint is overprinted in red with an advertisement for another charity, Card Aid, which was initially set up to provide charity Christmas cards to charities for them and their supporters to sell. The Christmas theme creates an interesting juxtaposition with the Indian newspaper, contrasting a largely Western, Christian Christmas tradition with the Hindu-dominated Indian background of the object’s origin. The object also serves as an example of contemporary ephemera, as well as ways of charitable giving and cultural exchange.
