The I.D.I.O.T Group is a Ljubljana-based "paraliterary" group of authors who engage in literary performances/readings involving poetry/prose and music as well as publish the biannual I.D.I.O.T Magazine devoted to poetry, prose, theory, and drama – especially aimed at the young and not-yet-established authors of the 21st century. As stated in one of their slogans, the group "fights against bazookas with violins". I.D.I.O.T publications are also accessible online, where they are joined by a regular stream of other curious content.

The Paraliterary Association I.D.I.O.T was founded in 2008. The active core of the group consists of Jasmin B. Frelih, Tibor Hrs Pandur, Uroš Prah, Katja Perat, who are accompanied by a handful of other authors.

I.D.I.O.T magazine has been published since April 2009, with its third edition published as a supplement of the critical student magazine Tribuna. The releases are usually accompanied by public events. They are a staple practice for I.D.I.O.T and with their live literature manifestations the authors have toured across Slovenia, visiting venues like Klub Menza pri koritu, ŠKUC Gallery, Pekarna Cultural Centre, Museum of Madness, Sokolski dom Culture Centre. They have also gone abroad, as for example visiting the European Poetry Slam in Berlin and making a tour around ex-Yugoslavia (Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Montenegro) with audio-visual spoken word performances.

Selected poems of the group members are also published in German, English, and Croatian. They perform in various multimedia contexts and creatively fuse their literary endeavours with the radio medium on a regular basis at Radio Študent.

Together with Young Rhymes – a poetry reading series where they regularly appear – I.D.I.O.T has in 2015 set in motion Literodrom, a festival of the currently developing literary practices, as they call it.
