After an extended Art Strike (& a move to Seattle), Ezra Mark returns, further along in both vision and practice. Neo-Situationist tactics like detournement and plagiarism (even a reprint of a 1961 Guy Debord essay) are much in evidence, as are various modes of effacement and erasement. Unlike some Situ stuff, the politics inform rather than obscure the aesthetic. The palimpsest, trace on top of obscured cultural trace, is the metaphor this calls up, and maybe the ghost of the other Ezra.--luigi
