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 analyzes the issue of superimposition as regards forms, colors, and hues. In terms of form, Rothfuss refers to three types of superimposition: total, partial, and the type that occurs when one item slides over another.
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 of the magazine. Carlos María Rothfuß (who went by the name of Rhod Rothfuss) was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1920 and died in 1969. He was a co-editor of Arturo magazine, where he published his article, "EI marco: un problema de la plástica actual" [The Frame: an issue concerning current visual arts], which made an important contribution to the development of Concrete art in the River Plate region. Rothfuss was represented in the first two exhibitions, held in 1945, and later joined the Madi group. This particular article has been chosen because it confirms that the Arte Madí program and theoretical approach was interested in analyzing forms by themselves, and while being superimposed.
