The New Museum has installed "Fire In My Belly" in its lobby. The video, which is by the late New York artist David Wojnarowicz, was on view in the Smithsonian last week as part of a gay-themed exhibit. The Smithsonian took the video down on November 30, after the Catholic League called it an act of "hate speech" for several seconds of ants crawling on a crucifix during the film.

Check out the video below:
