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.

Guyla Kosice’s essay refers to the topical nature and, therefore, the universal quality of “arte madí” [Madí Art]. He explains that Madí art has already spread beyond its original core in Buenos Aires, as he notes in his comments on this exhibition of Arte Madí Internacional [International Madí Art] at the Galerie Denise René [Denise René Gallery].
Gyula Kosice (1924-2016), an exponent of the visual arts, was a member of the group that launched Arturo magazine. He was also involved in the Arte Concreto — Invención Movement, and joined the Arte Madí group in 1946. In 1948, a collection of his works was exhibited at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in Paris. As a sculptor he created mobile structures that relied on water, movement, and light. He currently lives and works in Buenos Aires.
The exhibition opened on February 18, 1958, at the Galerie Denise René, in Paris, and included works by N. Kasak, A. Llorens, R. Rothfuss, N. Oliveira, J. Bay, G. A. Gutiérrez, B. L. Herrera, G. Kosice, A. Linenberg, A. Scopelliti, S. Darie, and E. Eitler. Pierre Guéguen wrote the prologue to the catalogue, which also has an essay by Gyula Kosice.
