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.

In its desire to present the latest news without necessarily taking on a specific stance, the Mexican magazine published an essay by Ramón Vinyes who was from Cataluña. Revista de Revistas broadened its coverage of new art by publishing Guillaume Apollinaire’s “calligrammes”; visual poems by Pierre-Albert Birot, the editor of the journal SIC (Sons, Idées, Couleurs) [Sounds, Ideas, Colors (1916)] and a promoter of the nun-ism movement; as well as of late-Futurist poetry by Luciano Folgore.
Articles such as the one published in Revista de Revistas allowed artists in the Estridentista movement to absorb and reinterpret the innovations of the European avant-garde in their essays, paintings, and poems. Ideas introduced by Cubist-Futurism, Lettrism, and visual poetry appeared in Estridentista publications, inspired by the theories of Guillaume Apollinaire (Wilhelm de Kostrovitsky, 1880–1918) and Filippo Tommaso Marinetti (1876–1944). Artists such as Diego Rivera had already been involved in some of the historic avant-garde movements; which, in addition to that European experience, kept still working on their own repertoire of proposals.
