»The Old Man and the Bird« at GRIMMWELT

The puppetoon »The Old Man and the Bird« by Dennis Stein-Schomburg is part of the »Der 8. Zwerg«-exhibition at the GRIMMWELT Kassel.

From november 24th onwards the GRIMMWELT invites their visitors to an exciting travel through the world of fairy tales. The special exhibition „Der 8. Zwerg“ ( the 8th dwarf ) offers meaningful insights and interactive possibilites to discover with one’s senses.

Hommage an die Brüder Grimm
Im ersten Bereich der Ausstellung dreht sich alles um die Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Tier in den Grimm’schen Märchen, ganz besonders die Verwandlung von einem in andere spielt dabei eine wichtige Rolle. Neben interaktiven Mitmachstationen bietet der Film „The old man and the bird“ von Dennis Stein-Schomburg von der Kunsthochschule Kassel einen Einblick in die Thematik.

The Old Man and the Bird


12ROOMS – An animation installation in space. 12 students, 12 rooms, 12 stories.

Exhibition in the framework of Rundgang. The concept was to project traditional 2d animation into space, thereby overcoming the natural “flatness” of the medium.

Project was produced over the course of one semester. All rooms are conceptionally connected.

In a variety of ways every days life challenges are implemented in creative and imaginative ways. The journey becomes the reward. Step by step problems get solved.

The films are serving with answers to questions that usually nobody dares to ask.

It’s a great mixture of complementary works, workshop results and small projects that all invite you to join our insanity and to plunge into unexpected depths of the mind.

Animationclass Kassel in Madagascar


Between 15. and 26. April a little group from two students from the animation class (Daniel Maass, Filip Dippel) and the KHK employee Franka Sachse will travel to Madagascar. There they will go to the Filmfestival „Rencountre du Film Court Madagaskar“, present the animation class of Kassel and their films, and take part at the 4 day long workshop, in which in accord with the madagascan film makers a group project will be created.

The idea for the trip was brought forth in the last year when three young madagascan film makers and the director of „Rencountre du Film Court Madagaskar“ came to Kassel with the help of Afrikamera Filmfestival Berlin, to show their films at the Dokfest Kassel. During their stay they joined a 48h-Animation-Jam in the animation class. There the first connection was tied, which was only able to be concreted by the returned visit of Kassel to Madagascar.

Impression: Trickreich fifteen


On the fourth, fifth and sixth of February the lovers of animation came together and sat down in the Bali Kino Kassel.

Around twenty newest projects of the animation class entertained the viewers with their lifelike, poetic, funny and confrontational content.

In the newspaper article Mark-Christian von Busse writes: „Von Befangenheit oder Zurückhaltung kann bei den Studierenden keine Rede sein.“ – “There is no question of bias or restraint by these students”

The cherry on the cake was the film presentation „The Old Man and The Bird“ from Dennis Stein-Schomburg. At the very least, a detail showed the potential of the work of art, which was allowed to celebrate at the Berlinale premiere

Trickreich fifteen

It’s that time again: By TRICKREICH FÜNFZEHN the animation class of Kunsthochschule Kassel will present their current works.
As usual, it is about the basic questions of life: If everyone pulls me down, do I still want to get up? Does this man have a bird or is it in his imagination? Is Eddy a Champion? The answers to these questions will be given at the 4th, 5th and 6th February at 22:15 in BALi-Kino, Kulturbahnhof Kassel.

We recommend to pre-ordering tickets
