This paper is a short meditation on the nature and scope of an archive of Indian popular images, particularly the images that have been the subject of much of my own research so far: the mass-produced prints known as "calendar art" or "bazaar art". Written in the context of a workshop aiming to conceptualize a scholarly archive of South Asian popular art, it explores what kinds of events might be recorded or traced by such an archive, and what kinds of events it might produce.
