Focus group is an art collective based in Zageb (recently moved to Rijeka). Iva Kovač and Elvis Krstulović work together since 2005 and since 2012 in a collective titled Focus group. Their work is in the framework of post-conceptual art practices and their shape is interdisciplinary.

Focus group works with, but also against the idea of "political" and "subjective" in the arts and culture production. Understanding art production as materialistic practice Kovač and Krstulović have so far explored the legal, economic and social (non) consequences of art production, as well as the ways in which the politics (mis) uses, appropriates and instrumentalizes feelings.
