Studied English Literature and Poetry at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Michigan, ¬ј, 1964-67; MA, 1974-75), Columbia University (New York, MFA, 1968-70). In 1980 at the University of Michigan she received a doctorate degree; in her thesis she focused on the contemporary poetry and various performing practices. She is the author of the book The Poetry Reading: A Contemporary Compedium of Language and Performance (jointly with S. Vincent, San Francisco: MomoТs Press, 1981), and also of the articles dedicated to the issues of theory and practice of experimental poetry and art, including the following: Jackson MacLow: The Limits of Formalism (Poetics Today, Vol.3, no.3, 1982), Feminism and Formalism (Poetics Journal, #4, 1984), Suspicious Language (The Act, Vol.1, no.1, 1986), The Missing Context (Exposure, Vol.26, no.2/3, 1988), Life/Art Projects (The Act, Vol.2, no.1, 1990), The Best Kept Secret (American Book Review, Vol.16, no.3, 1994), Constructing Loss: Film and Presence in the Work of Eleanor Antin (Millenium Film Journal, no.29, 1996) and many others. Among the artistic publications (performance, installation, radio-texts) Ц in the collections, catalogues, literary miscellanies Ц are the following ones: High Performance (1981-83), Assembling (#12, 1985, New York), Moving Letters (#7, 1985, Paris), Unsound (Vol.2, no.2, 1985), Drukwerk De Zaak (#37, 1988, Groningen), Women and Performance (Vol.5, no.1, 1990), Resurgent: New Writing by Women (1992), Kenyon Review (Vol.16, no.1, 1994), The Drama Review (#151, 1996) and others. Working actively with the sound and video environment, E. Zweig uses historical, scientific and philosophical texts in her productions. Combination in the projects of various media environments and discourse practices, and also the exploitation of installation strategies with the use of descriptive figures camera obscura & camera lucida, testifies to the original artistТs approach in the studies of memory mechanisms.

Rubinstein, S. & W. Vasulka, New Mexico Museum of Fine Art, Santa Fe, 1994; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, 1997) and many others. She has conducted numerous performances and poetry readings, including the ones at the Institute of Modern Art (Brisbane, 1982), Georges Pompidou Center (Paris, 1984), San Francisco Art Institute (San Francisco, 1984), Australian Center for Contemporary Art (Melbourne, 1986), Detroit Institute of Art (Detroit, 1986), Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, 1991) and others.
