We have found a contribution from the year 1994 about the animation class in the annual archive for the 50th anniversary of the University of Kassel.
In 1994, the animation department of the Kunsthochschule Kassel celebrated its 25th anniversary. The animators are among the most successful areas of the university. In 1990, brothers Christoph and Wolfgang Lauenstein won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film with their animation “Balance”. In 1997, Thomas Stellmach, also a graduate of the animation class, brought the second Oscar to Kassel with his film “Quest”. Professor Paul Driesen, who taught animation at the Kunsthochschule Kassel from 1985 to 2005, was also nominated for an Oscar in 2000 for his film “3 Misses”.Source: https://uni-archiv.uni-kassel.de/jahresarchiv [translated]
