Last June, Peter Greenaway took computers, projectors and speakers into a Milan monastery in an attempt to reinterpret Da Vinci's The Last Supper. Now he comes to the ICA to argue that the world of text is giving way to a exciting new age of visual literacy.

Greenaway is the director and writer of The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover and The Draughtsman's Contract.

The use of camera phones and recording equipment during talks and events in the Feedback series is encouraged.
