Muriel Hasbun

El Salvador (San Salvador) 1961.
Lives and works in
Maryland, United States. 

She studied a Master of Fine Arts in photography at George Washington University, where she met various image professionals such as Ray K. Metzker, who supported her in her search for a language that was closer to metaphor than direct description. .


The way in which Hasbun approaches photography investigates identity, memory and migration. In this sense, she gets used to working conceptually on her own family archive - x - post facto & Si je meurs. Ella's recent series Pulse de ella brings us closer to the memory of the earth and the echoes of it on the visible surface of contemporary history. With her imagery, Hasbun proposes a new hermeneutical method with which to reinterpret and reconnect with geography, with belonging.


In 2020, she was part of the inaugural exhibition of Memoria, El Castigo and recently, in 2022, her photographs from the Pulse series were also included in the group exhibition América Anónima.

Her work is part of important public and private collections, including: Art Museum of the Americas, Washington, D.C. USA; Bert Hartkamp Collection, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris, France; The Montgomery County Public Art Trust Collection, MD, USA; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. USA; The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. USA; The University of Texas, Austin, Texas, USA; Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, Boone, NC, United States; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, USA.
