The shop window occupies its own genre in photography, from Eugène Atget to Zoe Leonard. In Williams's new theater production Stage Play the shop window and the storefront are the primary characters. Set in the streets of postwar Düsseldorf, this tense drama deals with the accumulation of contingent material suggestive of the quiet persistence of war.

Stage Play, Williams's first theater production, is created in dialogue with the artist's concurrent exhibition at gta exhibitions, ETH Zurich (on view through June 12, 2017).
