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 is the manifesto poster that gave rise to the Estridentista movement in Mexico. The poet Manuel Maples Arce issued the leaflet Actual as an aggressive vexation against the consecrated personalities of the literary milieu; said proclamation was posted on the streets as the initial act of subversion.
Even though he was the only real activist, Maples Arce (1898-1981) included in his manifesto that launched the Estridentista movement (1921) a roster of international avant-garde artists, many of them top-ranked artists: over two hundred followers! The ultraists from Barcelona, the futurists from Italy, and some representatives of the French avant-garde had sent some issues of their publications as well as manifestos that served as feedback to the poet. These were sources that encouraged the movement, even though its fundamental European influences turned out to be Spanish Ultraism and Italian Futurism.See the directory of the manifesto [doc. 754048]
