For a nonempty separable convex subset X of a Hilbert space (Ω), it is typical (in the sense of Baire category) that a bounded closed convex set C(Ω) defines an m-valued metric antiprojection (farthest point mapping) at the points of a dense subset of X, whenever m is a positive integer such that mdimX+1.
