Looking at the intersections between Israeli art history and Israeli television series, as well as their recent increased visibility at the international level, this essay seeks to understand what makes contemporary Israeli art and media works accessible to an international audience, and how this recent success may reflect changes in Israeli and Jewish constructions of identity. Furthermore, it attempts to address the crisis of Jewish-Israeli identity as it is portrayed on Israeli television screens and to ask what can be learned about it from the perspective of Israeli art history.
