The group stopped with its joint activities in 2017.
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, for example, visiting the European Poetry Slam in Berlin and making a tour around ex-Yugoslavia (Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, 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 – in 2015 I.D.I.O.T set in motion Literodrom, a festival of the currently developing literary practices, as they call it.
