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 his text for the Art in Editions: New Approaches (New York, Loeb Student Center: January 8–31, 1968) exhibition catalog, Luis Camnitzer explains the objective of the exhibition and describes the nature of the work of each of the participating artists.
Luis Camnitzer (b. 1937), along with José Guillermo Castillo and Liliana Porter (b. 1941), founded the New York Graphic Workshop (NYGW) in New York City during the winter of 1964–65. In addition to functioning as a teaching workshop and a printing house for other artists, this undertaking served as a place for discussion of the nature of engraving and its contemporary reach as can be observed in this text that Camnitzer wrote for the exhibition catalog of Art in Editions: New Approaches (New York, Loeb Student Center: January 8–31, 1968). In addition to the members of the NYGW, other participating artists included Carl Andre, Hans Brender, Hans Haacke, Bela Julesz, Julio Le Parc, Luis Felipe Noé, Nam June Paik, Eduardo Paolozzi, Michael Ponce de León, Omar Rayo, Diter Rot, Joe Wilson, Ernest Trova and Tom Wesselmann. Luis Camnitzer was born in Germany in 1937 and immigrated to Uruguay in 1939. He has retained his Uruguayan citizenship although he has lived in the United States since 1964.
