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.

The Centro de Estudios de Arte y Comunicación (CEAC) [Center for the Studies of Art and Communication] was founded in 1968; shortly after its first public event at the Galería Bonino (August–September 1969), it changed its name to the Centro de Arte y Comunicación (CAyC) [Center for Art and Communication]. With Jorge Glusberg (1934–2012) as its director and theoretician, the CAyC patronized different artists throughout the years. In 1971 the Grupo de los Trece [Group of Thirteen] was created; its members were Jacques Bedel, Luis [Fernando] Benedit (1933–2011), Gregorio Dujovny, Calros Ginzburg, Víctor Grippo, Jorge González Mir, Vicente Marotta, Luis Pazos, Alfredo Portillos, Juan Carlos Romero, Julio Teich, Horacio Zabala, Alberto Pellegrino, and Glusberg. Later some of these artists left the group and became linked to others, such as the Grupo CAyC, which was formed in 1975, with the participation of Bedel, Benedit, Grippo, Portillos, and Glusberg.
