I'd call this a paper cut-out style of animation, where everything is 2D layers being manipulated in 3D space. It's being combined with a kind of mechanical style, they took care to show the strings and connected elements to give it a feeling of an old style machine from an arcade or mechanical museum.

Yes, it's traditionally know as 'cut out' animation based on the fact that originally it was made using cut-out paper and card, hinged together with string and wires to allow stop frame animation.

While this was originally done under a camera and often with pieces placed on glass to create depth, nearly every version of that style is recreated in After Effects due to it's layering system. Often the best way of recreating that look theses days is combining scanned or photographed 2D elements and then lighting and animating them in After Effects.

There's an image from 'The South Bank Show' I worked on several years ago using the style at this link:

An here's a section from a musical film that uses similar technique:
