Her co-authored book The Happening of the Contemporary Performance Art (2016) and a series of interviews with live artists and curators have been published in China. Zeng’s doctoral research at the University of Sussex (2022) investigated how ‘sticky’ and viscous materials can broaden the feminist scope of thinking about embodiment, otherness, gender and body politics.
