I'm struggling to understand your message, so let's make sure I get
you right by rephrasing what I understood:

1. ALT + SHIFT + [ produces {

2. ALT is not AltGr and AltGr does not work, which means
   AltGr + [         does _not_ produce {   as well as
   AltGr + SHIFT + [ does _not_ produce {

3. You just use ALT+SHIFT because AltGr does not work but you want
   AltGr as modifier for { and }.

Could you please test for further investigation if in your scenario
the de_de.chargen and pressing "AltGr+Q" produces "@"?

Is there any chance you send a link to a keyboard layout picture or
page that describes the layout you desire?

Or even better: Could you send the output of

  setxkbmap -query

and a setxkbmap command line for your layout under Linux like

  setxkbmap -print -model pc105 -option -layout de -variant nodeadkeys
