This article focuses on how contemporary Dutch literature uses and produces images of and for Brussels. The stock of images the authors draw on consists of ‘universal’ images linked to urban literature on the one hand and specific images linked to Brussels in particular. Classic, modernist, and postmodernist urban images are all present in contemporary literature and are used in any combination. The stock of urban images and themes is increasingly being used in a conscious and creative way, to reflect upon the identity or identities of this city, rather than to preserve or establish them.
