A Fire In My Belly (Film In Progress)
David Wojnarowicz, USA, 1986-87, Super 8mm film, black and white & color, Silent


‘In November 2010, G. Wayne Clough, Secretary of the Smithsonian, removed Wojnarowicz’s short silent film A Fire in My Belly from the exhibit “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture” at the National Portrait Gallery after complaints from the Catholic League and Rep. John Boehner. One segment of the film shows ants crawling over a crucifix.


In response, The Andy Warhol Foundation, which had co-sponsored the exhibition, announced that it would not fund future Smithsonian projects, while several institutions, including SFMOMA, scheduled showings of the removed work.’
