I really don’t know why Israeli artists haven’t done better in the Contemporary Art market , but I think I can find the answer in your question. By this I mean to say that those Israeli artists have remained for the most part “Israeli”, they have never become simply “artists”. Their nationality is always part of their work, and today , among the top artists in the world, nationality is irrelevant. I think Sasportas and others are interesting, but there is a perception that they never shed their roots and join the global art dialogue. Same is true for “Latin American” art , or “Chinese Contemporary”, these artist are placed in their own categories and even separate catalogues at auction.
