    I would like to say:
    "cette oeuvre est à la fois une critique et une nouvelle approche explicative du consumerisme"

    Is it correct if said in that way:

    " This masterpiece is both a critique and a new approach of consumerism"

    or do I have to use " at the same time..."?

    Thanks you very much!

    No, your use of "both" is quite enough. However, it's an "approach to consumerism".
