Thanks for you answer! But I still have trouble. The code now looks like
(setq my-keymap (make-sparse-keymap))
(defvar my-keymap-enabled)
(setq minor-mode-map-alist `(cons '(my-keymap-enabled . ,my-keymap)
(setq my-keymap-enabled t)
(defun delete-with-closing-bracket (arg)
  (interactive "*p")
(define-key my-keymap (kbd "C-d") 'delete-with-closing-bracket)

Pressing C-d does not call the delete-with-closing-bracket function :(.
