Johannes Theodor Baargeld, pseudonym of Alfred Emanuel Ferdinand Gr├╝nwald (October 9 1892 - August 16 or 17, 1927), was a German painter and poet who, together with Max Ernst, founded the Cologne Dada group.

He was born in Stettin, Germany, which is now Szczecin, Poland.

Baargeld was the editor of the periodical The Fan (Der Ventilator)which Ernst and Hans Arp started in 1919, and he collaborated on many other Dadaist publications such as Bulletin D and Dada W/3.

He gave up painting in 1921 and died in an avalanche while climbing Aiguille de Bionnassay in the French Alps.
