I want to rewrite all files that are not found in ./webAssets/ to the parrent directory.

If this is NOT found:
./webAssets/image/graphic.gif

Then I want to rewrite the URL as:
../webAssets/image/graphic.gif

If this is NOT found:
./webAssets/media/movie.mov

Then I want to rewrite the URL as:
../webAssets/media/movie.mov

Where do you plan to put the rewrite rules and how does the URL-path look like?

I.e. to reach
"If this is NOT found:
./webAssets/image/graphic.gif"

you're calling example.com/foo/bar/webAssets/image/graphic.gif

which should be rewritten to
example.com/foo/webAssets/image/graphic.gif

and the rewrite rules are e.g. in a example.com/foo/.htaccess?

I will place the directives in an .htaccess file located here:
http://example.com/foo/bar/.htaccess

And I want
http://example.com/foo/bar/webAssets/images/pic.jpg

Rewritten here:
http://example.com/foo/webAssets/image/pic.jpg

You may try if relative paths in a substitution are working on your server because they're unsupported (that doesn't imply 'does not work').
RewriteEngine on
# does not exist as a file...
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(webAssets/.*) ../$1 [L]
