The residents of Warsaw will be able to admire the artistic construction in the form of a giant rainbow on plac Zbawiciela (Savior square) only until the end of summer holidays. Subsequently, the art installation will be disassembled and moved to a different location in Warsaw, Gazeta.pl webportal informed.

“During the weekend of August 22-23, a photo-booth will be installed,” said Magdalena Mich, a spokeswoman for the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, the owner of the rainbow.

In December, the permission to occupy the square expires, therefore the institute is looking for a new place for the installation. “We don’t want to reveal the names of our potential partners, before the end of negotiations,” she said.

It is said that the construction may be deployed in front of the Center for Contemporary Art in Warsaw (Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej).

The installation is stirring controversy in Poland as it is associated with the LGBT movement. It has been set on fire several times by nationalists and has been criticized by conservative politicians.
