In this article we discuss the Dutch literary magazine Das Magazin (2011-present) in the light of three hypotheses about the functioning of literary magazines as communities in present-day culture: the makers refuse to be part of the linear narrative of conventional modern literary history by not positioning themselves against their predecessors’ poetics or literary practice; the authorship that is practiced and represented in the community is a symptom of the current emancipation of the heteronomous writer, and: within the community there is no disdain for the fan culture of readers without self-evident knowledge of the conventions of the autonomous literary field.
