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 this letter, the Puerto Rican graphic artist, Lorenzo Homar, writes about developing the first portfolio and the objectives of the Taller Experimental de Artes Gráficas [Experimental Graphic Arts Workshop] at the Museo de Arte Moderno La Tertulia [La Tertulia Museum of Modern Art] in Cali, Colombia (TEAGC). Homar recommends establishing different groups of Colombian artists for each portfolio, stating that is not always necessary to use “la crema” [the cream] of the country[’s artists]. Based on his experience, Homar comments on the need for a strategy to improve the operations of TEAGC. This would include separating the roles of workshop director and administrator. On the plus side, Homar points out some of the TEAGC accomplishments: [most importantly,] a portfolio that includes the works of Colombian artists such as María de la Paz Jaramillo and Enrique Grau. He also thanks the individuals who have contributed to the workshop’s success.
