Andrea Liu on facebook: "The Parachuter is an artist who swoops into a conflict zone/geographic locale that is in great social/political distress (much like a vulture), instrumentalizes this distress in order to make an art project, wins accolades for all the “social good” they propagated, then later has nothing to do with the community in distress. They PARACHUTE IN and PARACHUTE OUT (i.e. 'parachuters' being ubiquitous in the American neoliberal/Creative Time/art-activist scene, Laura Poitras a quintessential example)."
