‘Questions of Belonging’ is a chapter in a peer-reviewed edited volume, Matters of Belonging: Ethnographic Museums in a Changing Europe, (Eds Modest, Thomas, Prilic and Augustat, Sidestone 2019), which has across its front and back covers an artwork by me, called ‘Europe the Game’ (2003-2019 ongoing). On the basis of this artwork, and 'Belonging', an audio artwork series of 12 x 10min (approx) podcasts, I was invited to write this chapter. Both artworks explore the question of belonging, one from the perspective of Europeanness and inclusion, and the other from the perspective of indigenous artefacts made elsewhere that are in Europe because of colonial contact. Both the artworks explore questions of belonging and this chapter takes the knowledge embodied in the artworks further by juxtaposing both with my own personal narrative.
