35 MM SHOOTING BY YONA PREMINGER
35 MM SHOOTING BY YONA PREMINGER
We spent the last month in Bangkok, mostly working in the studio on the video we made for U2…
Here are some pics by Yona Preminger from last days in the city:
Official video for “Get out of your own way” by U2.
Was a pleasure to work on this one, as we got complete creative freedom from the band, they explained us their idea of the song and asked as to do whatever we want, and saw it for the first time only when it was finished..
We would like to dedicate this video to Tinoki and to Ru.
big thanks to all our friends that helped us again!

“Kibushi” (roughly translated as “Making the occupation cute”)
ACRYLIC ON TRANSPARENT PAPER AND MIXED MEDIA 72 x 115 CM, 2017
A new work we created to “celebrate” 50 years of occupation. As part of the generation who grew up in the 90s and 2000s in Israel with a wealth of western influences – neon colours and plastic – and at the same time, the depressing reality and constant panic that is part of daily life here. These stickers are from the images that flooded our world; while kids in the west worshipped comic superheros, our Pop culture was generals and terrorists.
The work Kibushi is now on display at Urban Nation Museum in Berlin.
A mini version of the work is available as an edition sticker pack available only through Ghostown. The profit from the first 100 packs sold will go to bilingual education in Arabic and Hebrew in Haifa.

We Spend the last 2 months in crazy India. we met amazing gypsies, painted some walls and shoot a video clip for u2.. we got a lot of inspiration from this beautiful rich and dirty culture… here are some pictures from our journey by Yona Preminger:
New music video for U2
This is pretty surreal, a week ago we got a phone call from Universal, saying U2 wanted us to create an animation lyric video for their new song “American Soul” with an intro by Kendrick Lamar and they needed it ready in 7 days (!) We weren’t sure if it was even possible but of course we said yes. As we are all in different places at the moment, we shot it in Haifa, London and Rajasthan.
We teamed up with Adme the genius who we worked with for most of our videos, and shot it all in an intense 4 days, completely DIY…
Hope you enjoy..
