In March 2023, Dirk von Lowtzow's second book "Ich tauche auf" was published. It's a diary novel about a year in the life of the musician. But "Ich tauche auf" is also the atmospheric picture of a country in pandemic times, an odyssey of the daily life between doubts, fears, hope and love, and the genesis of the Tocotronic album "Nie wieder Krieg".
