Abstract: We determine the gauge symmetries of all p-forms in maximal three-dimensionalgauged supergravity by requiring invariance of the Lagrangian. It is shown thatin a particular ungauged limit these symmetries are in precise correspondenceto those predicted by the very-extended Kac-Moody algebra E11. We demonstratethat whereas in the ungauged limit the bosonic gauge algebra closes off-shell,the closure is only on-shell in the full gauged theory. This underlines theimportance of dynamics for understanding the Kac-Moody origin of the symmetriesof gauged supergravity.
