Additional details

insecure: adjective. I am insecure, you are insecure. Insecurity is not a question; it is not ignorance. It is the condition caused when one is conscious that there exists more than one choice and solution. The world is insecure, as a result the survivance of all of us is shaken. But that is the case of the lack of information. Insecurity does not have a unique solution for each situation and individual. Maybe the solution for insecurity is not security, but something different: moving forward, by turning insecurity into a subject of conversation and meditation, but not into a permanent condition. Sokol Çunga, archivist and translator, will talk about insecurity, giving examples and ideas from his professional and personal routine.
