This paper takes the form of a case study and aims to raise key issues in the process of a practice-led PhD. The subject of study in the PhD was to research the problematics of an art practice exploring Jewish identity in Britain. The methodology included the making of video installations and contextual theoretical writing that encompassed cultural studies, film theory, critical theory and art history. The paper gives detailed examples of my methodologies through the research, focusing particularly on the development of key artworks and the interplay of theory and practice.
