If, sometime in the next few months, you find yourself in London and hankering for a taste of home, a stop in at the Tate Modern might be just the cure for what ails you. The museum will open an exhibition later this week that focuses on the Bauhaus aesthetic and its place in "the New World." And, as Mark Hudson writes in the Telegraph, if the Bauhaus took root anywhere in America, it was in Chicago.
