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 announces a new column in the magazine Hoy that will feature “weekly comments from the desk of a Mexican diplomat who, for obvious reasons, wishes to remain anonymous.” Covering each of the days of the previous week, the author of the column comments on events of public interest. In this first column, the work of Diego Rivera is sarcastically criticized and compared to that of Rufino Tamayo.
This article marks the beginning of a journalistic section in the weekly magazine Hoy that for more than two years allowed the critic Margarita Nelken (1896–1968) to freely express her appreciation of the Mexican art world. The column covered all sorts of events that the Spanish journalist either attended or heard about, such as openings in local art galleries. Nelken was a staunch opponent of the cultural politics that defended muralism, and she took advantage of the space in this column to attack, through a humorous perspective, the production of Diego Rivera (1886–1957) and David Alfaro Siqueiros (1896–1974) in particular.
