Time, as in the times we live in, is a important aspect of the critical gaze. This is also the basis of anything being able to call itself either modern or contemporary. Such art works actively seek the connection between artistic expression and the times we live in, not in the least as they also sometimes strive to open a critical dialogue with a present artistic and political situation.

Your task is to write art criticism that takes into account the epochal dimensions, that probes the zeitgeist. We will see two performances (Boats & On Air) and your review will focus on the differences in the ways these performances relate to, and try to say something about, our times.
