Nora Treatbaby & Mohammed Zenia Siddiq Yusef Ibrahim

In torqued sentences, detourned phrases, philosophical excavations and punishing satire, Nora Treatbaby and Mohammed Zenia Siddiq Yusef Ibrahim make war on the real world. Our Air, Treatbaby’s full-length debut (Nightboat, 2024), builds on the titular promise of her chapbook Hope Is Weird. Zenia’s bitterly ironic Tel Aviv (Porosity Press, 2021) urges a fierce opposition to the fatal logic of the present. Together, they extend the poetic language of political militancy.
