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.

Masami Kuni believed that dance had not yet developed its own method of expression. In this article the Japanese choreographer proposes a concrete form of dance, consisting of non-figurative movements and with no specific meaning, such as he had created for his productions of The Blue Chain and The Emotion of a Little Girl, both of which premiered in Tokyo in 1951.
Arte Madí Universal magazine was published from 1947 until June 1954. Gyula Kosice (1924–2016) was the Editor, and was assisted by: Rhod Rothfuss, Diyi Laañ, H.-J. Koellreutter, Masami Kuni, Valdo Wellington, Alberto Sartorio, Alberto Hidalgo, and M. G. de la Fuente, among many others. The School’s Manifesto appeared in the first issue. This particular document has been chosen because it shows that the Madí group wanted to apply their ideas to all disciplines, in this case creating a form of choreography with no specific meaning or connotations.
