Against Interpretation

“There are no facts, only interpretations.”

Nietzsche

“By interpretation, I mean here a conscious act of the mind which illustrates a certain code, certain ‘rules’ of interpretation.

Directed to art, interpretation means plucking a set of elements from the whole work.”

Susan Sontag
