This chapter discusses Richard Huelsenbeck and his pre-Dada writings, showing that his extensive knowledge of how his country was politically and practically directed partly determined his literary agenda. It reveals the notion of the other politician and how this politician was gendered in Huelsenbeck's last Dada text. The chapter shows that Huelsenbeck provided an alternative to the practical organisation of democracy through his experimental literature.

Keywords:   Richard Huelsenbeck, pre-Dada writings, literary agenda, other politician, alternative, practical organisation, democracy, experimental literature
