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 an attempt by Febronio Ortega, a Mexican correspondent in Europe, to define the particular traits of the ultraist movement launched in Spain during the period following the First World War, and spread to America, (mainly Argentina) as a new attempt by artists to distance themselves from reproducing perceptible reality. Ultraism had at its disposal publications such as Grecia and Ultra. It is worth pointing out that ideographic poems are part of its visual and literary repertoire.
According to the critic Luis Mario Schneider, Grecia was a publication unknown to the estridentista founding father, Manuel Maples Arce (1898-1981), until after launching his first issue of the leaflet Actual. Argentine artists such as Norah Borges, collaborated for Grecia. Her geometric graphics are related to estridentista artists such as Ramón Alva de la Canal and Leopoldo Méndez.
