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.

Colombian artist Pedro Alcántara writes to Lorenzo Homar to confirm that the exhibition to be presented in Colombia will be titled El Cartel en Puerto Rico, Gráfica de Lorenzo Homar [The Poster in Puerto Rico: Printmaking by Lorenzo Homar]. He asks Homar to send a complete list of his works, photographs, and curriculum. In addition to discussing the details of the exhibition, Alcántara lists the materials on hand and those that will be needed to organize the printmaking workshop that Homar will present in Cali, Colombia. This workshop will take place a few days after the opening of the exhibition. In a postscript at the end of the letter, Alcántara tells Homar that they have never had a foreign artist come to teach a printmaking class, and adds that the experience, in his opinion, will be “of great value in terms of our future plans.”
