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.

Rubén Santantonín is selected for the Premio de Honor [Prize of Honor] at Ver y Estimar 1963 (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires).
Rubén Santantonín (1919-1969) coined the term “cosas” [“things”] for his artistic production. He used the term to refer to cardboard reliefs, which were meant to be exhibited on supporting walls, as well as to hanging objects, created with rudimentary materials such as plaster, cloth, cardboard and wire.In 1965 Rubén Santantonín burned all his works—there remain a few reproductions—and, as such, the photographic records within catalogs and brochures acquired special significance. Ver y estimar [See and Consider] (1948 – 1955) was created by Jorge Romero Brest in collaboration with his students. The Asociación Ver y Estimar was founded in 1954; a few years later it gave rise to the Premio Ver y Estimar [See and Consider Prize] (Buenos Aires, 1960-1968).
