Anna Kournikova deleted by Memeright Trusted System Fiktive Zeitungsmeldung, Quelle: www.futurefeedforward.com, 2067 Die fiktive Zeitungsmeldung über den Tod des Ex-Tennisprofis und Models Anna Kournikova, auf die sich der Ausstellungstitel bezieht, beschreibt nicht eine ferne Zukunft, sondern in gewisser Weise bereits unsere Gegenwart.
