Julio Carrasco
(Chile, 1969)   
Julio Carrasco

Poet Julio Carrasco is a member of Casagrande, a Chilean art collective responsible for multidisciplinary interventions in urban spaces, among them - the Bombing of Poems - a performance in which cities that have experienced aerial bombing in the past are sprinkled with poems in the present: thus far - La Moneda in Chile, Dubrovnik, Guernica, Warsaw, Berlin, London and Milan. A musician, novelist, and civil engineer, in addition to being a poet, he has contributed to the soundtracks of several Chilean films.

Descendants of Jewish anarchists who fled from the pogroms of the early 20th century Ukraine, the poet's parents were members of the Left Revolutionary Movement (MIR), a Chilean Marxist party, and were kidnapped during the Pinochet dictatorship. After the release of his mother, the family went into exile to Paris and three years later, to Havana, where his father underwent a surgery to remove a bullet lodged in his leg. Julio Carrasco returned to Chile in 1993, after finishing his engineering studies in Cuba. He studied music composition at the University of Chile and is the lead singer of the rock band Los Muebles.
