is a print publishing project founded by Jordan Hearns and Jack Scollard.

Developing on from our collaborative photographic zine ‘Reverie’, released in 2020, our aim with SMUT Press is to spotlight, support and commission artists to produce printed matter, with a particular focus on platforming artists who are queer identifying.

Both recent graduates of Dublin art schools - Jack from the Fine Art Print & Critical Cultures department of the National College of Art & Design (NCAD), and Jordan from the Fine Art Photography department of the Technological University Dublin (TUD) - SMUT Press is now based between London and Dublin.

In February 2022, we launched our first zine, and the press at large, in Dublin. Since then, we have gone on to publish six forms of printed matter, exhibited at a number of independent fairs, as well as curating an ongoing music-based mix series. SMUT Press was born out of a belief that our friend’s work deserved much, much better recognition and representation, to escape any limitations imposed by larger arts and publishing institutions, as well as to offer a support network for those wishing to create printed matter in an informal, supportive and encouraging environment.

Material by the press has been stocked with Donlon Books, Tenderbooks, Village Books, Good Press, Common Press, The Library Project, Photo Museum Ireland and Voo Store in Berlin, amongst others. Our entire archive of printed matter thus far was recently acquired by the Bishopsgate Institute in London, and subsequent works published through the press are housed in the PhotoIreland Archive and Photo Museum Ireland’s National Photography Collection.
