ABOUT
Do the stars gaze back? emphasizes the way in which, over the centuries, part of the artistic creation has focused on the observable, being possible to highlight a great number of works that approach, directly or indirectly, the night sky. Although celestial objects are familiar to us, the associated phenomena are complex. Do the stars gaze back? assumes that art can be a powerful assistant in its understanding.
The project creates a bridge between art and astronomy through an archive of works with origins in painting, literature, music and cinema. As a journal, it consists of a 365-publication-archive, which addresses each topic autonomously.
Do the stars gaze back? comes from the partnership with the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço [Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences] and celebrates the 100th anniversary of the International Astronomical Union in the month of its anniversary.
