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 prints exhibited by Adolfo Bellocq in the Sociedad Amigos del Arte [Friends of the Art Society] in Buenos Aires in 1927. It values the diversity of techniques, but at the same time warns against “the risk of losing oneself in the virtuosity of process, thus confusing the means with the end.” It also criticizes the lack of drafting skills.
La Campana de Palo [The Wooden Bell] published its first six editions between June and December 1925. Following a time in which the journal was not published, it reappeared in September 1926 with a contiguous enumeration, although using a different format and with the subtitle Periódico Mensual. Bellas Artes y Polémica [Monthly Journal: Fine Arts and Controversy]. In this second phase that lasted until September–October 1927, eleven issues were published.
La Campana de Palo was one of the main publications for the dissemination of the ideas belonging to the anarchist group led by Alfredo Chiabra-Acosta, also known by the pseudonym Atalaya, or At.
The article contains an error with respect to the artist’s name. It mentions an Alfredo Bellocq, but it should read Adolfo Bellocq.
