The late-modern society produces singularities. It does no longer aim at the general, standardized and average solely, but promotes and expects uniqueness. Things, individuals, events, places and communities – everything wants to be special… The result is a competition of attention and evaluation for the status of this uniqueness, the so-called singularity. The result: there are losers and winners. Digital technologies, such as social media platforms and smartphones, are a necessary condition of the process. Andreas Reckwitz asks in his lecture on the society of singularities: To what extent can digitalisation be interpreted as a mechanism of social singularisation and what are the consequences?
