Against Interpretation - Susan Sontag

This picture was taken in Amsterdam in 2007.

Susan Sontag was an American author, philosopher, literary theorist and political activist.
Against Interpretation was first published in 1966.


"Books are funny little portable pieces of thought."

"Interpretation is the revenge of the intellect upon art. Even more. It is the revenge of the intellect upon the world. To interpret is to impoverish, to deplete the world - in order to set up a shadow world of 'meanings'."

"The painter constructs, the photographer discloses."

"(...)art changes morals."
