The editorial categories are research topics that have guided researchers during the recovery phase and continue to be the impetus behind the Documents Project’s digital archive and the Critical Documents book series. Developed by the project’s Editorial Board, each of the teams analyzed this framework and adapted it to their local contexts in developing their research objectives and work plans during the Recovery Phase.

This article by Brazilian artist and art critic Ricardo Basbaum examines some aspects of the connection between text and image on the basis of the philosophical distinction Gilles Deleuze establishes between “enunciation” and “visibility.” Basbaum discusses approaches he deems intrinsic to critical texts (including his own writings), as well as the work of international artists, such as Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Kosuth, On Kawara, and Hélio Oiticica—especially Oiticica’s use of words in some of his works.
Este artigo investiga alguns aspectos das relações entre texto e imagem no campo das artes plásticas, a partir da distinção do filósofo Gilles Deleuze entre enunciados e visibilidades. São discutidas algumas modalidades de textos críticos, dentre os quais o texto do artista, além da obra dos artistas Marcel Duchamp, Joseph Kosuth, On Kawara e Helio Oiticica, em especial no que se refere à presença da palavra em seus trabalhos.
In the Brazilian context, if not beyond, the use of text was central to the resurgence of Conceptualism in the nineties. The author of this text discusses the local case of Hélio Oiticica in relation to international precedents, such as Duchamp, Kosuth, and Kawara.
