Oscar Barda is very good at video games, his grandma once said he "gets" them. He's been playing them for like since he was a kid or so and that totally makes him a specialist.
He's also an art counselor in interactive art and video games at La Gaîté lyrique in Paris where in 2012 he co-directed the exhibition Joue Le Jeu (play along) currated by Lynn Hugues, Heather Kelley and Cindy Poremba. Permanent currator of the free and open video game space of la Gaîté lyrique, Oscar selects games all year long to be featured to the public with new selections of 8 games every other week. If you have a great game you'd like to see displayed in a museum, send inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oscar co-founded Them Games, a Paris-based indie game studio in 2012 and has worked with many other game companies before mainly as a game designer.
